The Real Story of the Jamaican Bobsled Team Depicted in 'Cool Runnings'

Devon Harris was a founding member of Jamaica's famous bobsled team fictionalized in the 1993 movie, 'Cool Runnings.' When he started, he was a member of the Jamaican military, and admitted, "We had never seen a bobsled ourselves." Harris told, "I knew that it was a winter sport. It was fast. It was dangerous, but that's the extent of my bobsled knowledge." While Harris never got an Olympic medal, he got the ride of his life.
