Yes, I Can!: The story of the original Jamaican Bobsled Team and how they had the courage to pursue their dreams of an Olympic Medal for their country.
Yes, I Can!
Jamaica is a tropical island famous for sun, sea and surf, yet they produced one of the most popular teams in the history of the Winter Olympics.
Support? They didn’t have any. Many people laughed at them and thought they were a joke. Money? They didn’t have any. They sold T-shirts to raise the funds they needed.
Equipment? They didn’t have any. They rented an old inferior sled in order to compete.
With dogged determination and a belief in themselves and each other they did the impossible by qualifying as the members of their nations first Winter Olympic Team.
With personal and national pride on the line these underdogs competed fiercely at the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada . The awesome foursome did not win a medal but they won the heart of the entire world.
They have taught us that we can still succeed against seemingly insurmountable odds if we believe in ourselves and say Yes, I Can!
