QMI AGENCY

Jamaica’s tourism agency has released an animated music video to coincide with their national bobsled team's return to the Winter Olympics for the first time since 2002.

Appropriately titled It’s Bobsled Time, the song supposedly syncs perfectly with the bobsled track in Sochi, Russia, the video’s producers claim.

The video, set to reggae music, shows Jamaica’s two-man team of Winston Watts and Marvin Dixon sliding down the track.

The competition kicks off at 11:15 a.m. (Eastern) Sunday.

Jamaica has never medalled at a Winter Games — and likely still won't, given their sled is ranked somewhere around 40th in the world.

There had been concerns prior to these Games over whether Team Jamaica could afford to send the men to Sochi post-qualification.

Then the Internet got involved, with supporters raising close to $200,000 to help send the islanders to the Games.

The Jamaican bobsled team gained massive popularity after the 1993 Disney film “Cool Runnings” chronicled Jamaica’s trip to the 1988 Calgary Games.
