Bobsledder Jazmine Fenlator

US Olympics bobsled driver Jazmine Fenlator is expected to switch allegiances and compete for Jamaica with the goal of leading the island nation’s first-ever women’s bobsled team to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and building a substantial women’s program for Jamaica that will live well past her career.

The 30-year-old bobsled pilot, said she gained a new perspective on sport at a global level and of the need for more nations to compete, especially in niche winter sports.

Jamaica last had a women’s bobsled team competing on the world cup circuit in 2001, when Portia Morgan and Jennifer Cole finished 26th in Germany.

The athlete, also hopes to recruit Olympic champion sprinter, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
