The Jamaican Bobsled Team made its way to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, to promote its trip to the Sochi Olympics on Monday.
“We’re here to let people know that we are here and still in need of funding,” coach Wayne Thomas told The Associated Press, adding jokingly, “And also to see some stars.”
“Only lady stars,” driver Winston Watts said.
Watts has said for months he is seeking funding to aid his competitive efforts. He is not in danger of missing out on Sochi though. The money would go to improving his equipment.
The team snapped photos with festival goers on Main Street in Park City. Watts resides in Evanston, Wyo., which is about 60 miles away. He trains on the Park City bobsled track from the 2002 Olympics.
