Dogecoin Jamaican Bobsled Team loses their luggage, makes it to Bloomberg, finds their luggage
…may have to compete with borrowed equipment after travel plans from New York were disrupted.
“Our luggage and blades didn’t arrive,” Winston Watts told reporters today. “Maybe it was left in New York. It was bad weather there and we missed our flight to Moscow. What I am wearing now is what I have.”
“We have a back-up plan, a lot of guys wanted to help us, and we may race on borrowed blades,” said Watts, who will compete at his fourth games. “It is a tough way to start.”
Watts first competed at the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, six years after Jamaica’s debut at the Calgary event inspired the 1993 movie “Cool Runnings,” which made $68.8 million at the U.S. box office.
But don’t worry it’s all good
They found their gear
