The Jamaica Bobsled Team is training for the Olympics in Wyoming and Utah.

The area has actually been the Jamaica Bobsled base for more than 15 years, thanks to an attorney.

In the above video, KSL TV in Salt Lake City tells the story of how Jamaican Winter Olympians wound up in the U.S. and how success in Sochi could resonate back home in their track-crazed nation.

“I couldn’t walk in the streets of Jamaica if we win a medal,” push athlete Marvin Dixon said. “Usain Bolt would be second to us, I tell you.”
