The true story of four unlikely jamaican athletes whos dream is to become olympic champions. With the help of their coach, they enter the winter olympics in a sport they know nothing about - bobsledding - in a climate they can barely imagine.

"...very, very funny!  CBS Radio, Los Angeles
"Rocky on ice!  ABC-TV
"...surprisingly entertaining with a nice sweetness ...  Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...wholesome, engaging, frequently hilarious, ultimately inspirational...  Richard Harrington, Washington Post

Editor's Note
Inspired by the true story of the first Jamaican Olympic Bobsled Team. The always appealing Candy is the ex-champion who takes on the four islanders who know nothing about the sport and whips them into champions.

Plot Summary
When a fellow competitor trips Derice at an Olympic qualifying track meet, Derice fails to acquire the final points necessary to get to the summer games. To make matters worse, the local board refuses to reinstate Derice. But there's still way for him to make it to the Olympics.| After learning about a wacky American bobsledder living in Jamaica -- who had years earlier attempted to recruit Derice's father for a Jamaican bobsled team -- Derice's competitive spirit is renewed. Realizing that bobsledding may be his golden opportunity, he drafts his go-cart driving buddy Sanka, and talks Winter Olympian Irv Blitzer into coaching this offbeat team. Blitzer whips the dedicated athletes into bobsledding shape despite the total absence of snow. Together they're the weirdest outfit at Calgary -- but no one's more fun at the winter games.
