They went out after the third run, finishing 29 out of 30 teams.

The team sat down to talk about how positive the games have been, despite defeat.

The Jamaican bobsled team shot to international stardom during their debut at the 1988 Winter Games in Calgary, Alberta.

Their story is the inspiration behind the Disney film Cool Runnings.
