WATCH: What returning to the Olympics after 24 years means to the Jamaican bobsled team

From PBS NewsHour.

It has been 24 years since the four-man Jamaican bobsled team has made it to the Olympic games.

The team’s first foray into the sport was in 1988 and that journey inspired the popular movie, “Cool Runnings.” “This won’t be our last Olympics, and there won’t be a next 24 years span for us to qualify again,” Nimroy Turgott, the team’s bobsled brakeman told the PBS NewsHour.
