I remember one weekend (many years ago) walking around our local Movie Rental shop for a DVD to watch. As we flicked through loads of plastic cards and read the brief write ups. We stumbled upon "Cool Runnings", which somehow just looked something very different from the normal type of films we used to watch. We were definitely not disappointed with the content of this Movie. There were many "both funny and tragic" moments acted in the various scenes, as the story unfolded.

If you have never seen this Jamaican epic Movie then feast your eyes on the Official Trailer video below. This is a truly awesome Disney film that provides hope, inspiration and even greater entertainment. (in my opinion).

The video below shows a clip of the real Olympic event by the Jamaican Bobsleigh Team. I guess this was the event that inspired the making of the Movie "Cool Runnings".
