WHISTLER, B.C. - The Jamaica's bid to get its four-man bobsled into the Winter Olympics appears to have failed.
A preliminary list of sleds that have entered the Olympics, obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday, did not show Jamaica in the field.
Officials from the Vancouver organizing committee are in the process of certifying those entries.
There remains a chance more nations could be added, but for that to happen a sled that has entered must drop out.
A spokesman for the Jamaican Bobsled Federation did not immediately return a call or email seeking comment.
A group of Jamaican track athletes reached the 1988 Calgary Olympics and inspired the movie "Cool Runnings."
