Jamaican Bobsled Team -- Olympic Run is Done

2/4/2010 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jamaican Bobsled TeamHey people, you know you can't believe ... Jamaica won't have a bobsled team in the upcoming Winter Olympics. Sad...

In what could be the most disappointing news of the upcoming Vancouver Games, it was announced that Jamaica has failed to qualify.

But all hope is not lost -- the team is still optimistic about their chances in 2014.

As for the Swiss team -- they'll be there .. and they're expected to dominate ... again.

In Sweedens defense, unlike Jamaica, it does snow in Sweeden.

Aaww snap.. I would have loved to see them this time around. Would have sure been interesting to see some other teams other than the norm. Hope their 2014's run goes good. Go team Jamaica!

There is going to be one African fella that is going to ski. He just started learing to ski a few years ago and he is the only one to represent his country at these Olympics. He is pretty good also. He is also paying his own way as his country didn't contribute towards it. I hope TV shows him.

They should be given a lifetime qualifying exemption! Let 'em in and let 'em run--let's put the FUN back in fun and games.

Im sorry why is it that you have that attitude as if you ever had the chance to be as significant in your life, even if for once. How much talent did it take to write the words we just read? With your consistent biased and irrelevant articles. You are not HALF the website of others such as Radaronline.com, X17online.com, or People.com. You guys have up to the minute stuff like deaths and autopsies but other than that i can look forward to the negativity. Youre sure to have some!

#6 & #7 Natesha: You should really at least know a little something about a subject before you write about it. Jamaica was not "kicked out." They didn't even qualify. They weren't good enough to even compete. You also said "oh i knw its because you guys are scared that we could WIN. you guys always try to put the black people done." NEWS FLASH! Jamaica NEVER WON TO BEGIN WITH. They weren't even remotely close. As far as "you guys always try to put the black people DONE," no one is holding anyone "DONE." Thanks for the laugh though! Done, indeed!
