It's bobsled time!

The Jamaican women's bobsled team made their Olympic debut on Tuesday, becoming the first women's team from Jamaica to take part in the competition.

Teammates Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian and Carrie Russell had a tough time making it to the games after losing their coach, sponsors, and sled shortly before the competition. However, with some help from the Jamaican beer company Red Stripe, the team was able to secure a sled and make it to the Olympics.
