Jamaican wins Medal @ Olympic Games

Jamaican wins Medal @ Olympic Games

Jamaica Bobsled

Monday, February 20, 2006

A former Jamaican bobsledder is now an Olympic medallist. Lascelles Brown, who pushed sleds for Jamaica from 1999 until 2004, has helped Canada win a silver medal, in two-man bobsledding at the winter games in Turin.

Brown became a Canadian citizen last month and earned the right to represent his new homeland. He and driver Pierre Lueders finished the two-day, four-run competition behind Germany.

He is the second black bobsled medallist in Winter Olympic history.
