Video Of Jamaica's Entrance Into Winter Olympics Takes Internet By Storm

By Chet Dawson

Remember the 1993 cult hit Cool Runnings, a film that chronicled a Jamaican bobsled team's attempt to qualify for the Winter Olympics?

It was awesome and it had John Candy and a message to believe in yourself and shoot for the moon. People who were eight when the movie came out might be surprised to discover that it is (sort of, loosely) based on a true story from the Calgary Olympics thirty years ago.

And it just so happens that the moment of the all-female reboot has brought the world the first Jamaican women's bobsled team to qualify and compete in the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. 

The team chose to celebrate their nation's historic first with an entrance that will live forever.
