30 years after Jamaica's men competed at the Winter Olympics for the first time in the bobsleigh - an appearance which inspired the film Cool Runnings - the country's women have qualified for the event for the first time.
A team of Carrie Russell, Audra Segree and Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian will compete for Jamaica in South Korea next month.

Brakeman Carrie Russell is a World Atheltic Championship gold medalist - she was part of the Jamaica team which won the 4x100m relay in 2013 in Moscow.
"This is one of the happiest moments of my life, I never dreamed that I would become a bobsleigh athlete. Today also marks three years since I lost my father, which makes this journey even more meaningful," said the 27-year-old.
Her fellow brakeman Segree is also a sprinter while pilot Fenlator-Victorian previously competed for the US in the event at the last Games. She has since switched her allegiance to her father's native Jamaica.
