Jamaican Bobsled Team Seeks Funding for Winter Olympics

The twin athletes from Jamaica who have qualified for the Sochi Olympics are having pecuniary problems. Way back in 1988, the Jamaican bobsled team got medals in memory of which a movie by the name of Cool Runnings was made

Now, with the current two champs, the only issue is legal tender. It’s all about the money. Winston Watts and Marvin Dixon face a dilemma of sorts. While they have made the grade, they don’t have the cash to afford all the expenses that go along with the trip to Sochi. 

Watts has emerged from his retired status and even started the fundraising efforts. But the amount in dollars required for making the journey and accommodation feasible is a little too much.  

"Everyone’s happy that they qualified but the facts are that the funding isn’t quite here to pay for the trip yet," states Jamaican bobsled team.  

The players are even employing the services of PayPal. It is hoped that the Jamaican Olympic Association will step in and lend some financial aid to the team. But it remains a moot point. 

It is sad when you have such talented and capable athletes, who are capable of winning the topmost positions for their home countries, forgo the opportunity just because of a dearth of funds. 

They are even considering using Kickstarter as a platform for collecting some greenbacks. If they manage to win a medal at the Sochi Winter Olympics, the team may have another movie made that depicts their triumph. 

The Jamaican bobsled team's official website states, "We have the PayPal button on every page of the website but for those who would rather donate by mail (yes, there are still those who like to do that way) the address is:

Jamaican Bobsled Team

920 Main St.

Evanston, WY 82930

There are also some other ways to donate, you can get ahold of Winston Watts through the comment section here on this website if you wish, or there is a new unique way to donate using a virtual currency called Dogecoins. You can find out more here and here."
