Jamaican bobsled team finally gets gear

The Jamaican bobsled team qualified for the 2014 Winter Olymics in Sochi but needed a massive fundraising campaign in order to make it to the games.

Now the teams equipment is missing. Not in Sochi are runners (blades), shoes and other gear.

“The sled is here,” driver Winston Watts said. “But the blades that we put our heart out to get, the airline maybe left them back in New York.”

Watts said he and brakeman Marvin Dixon missed their connecting flight in Moscow after being delayed by bad weather in New York. While other competitors got in unofficial training runs on the Sanki Sliding Center track, Watts was on the phone trying to find out what to do next.

“I do have a backup plan,” Watts said, trying to make light of a “frustrating” situation. “We do have a lot of guys here that want to help us, so I’m excited to see what’s going to be the outcome tomorrow.”
