And, in other sports news...do you remember the Disney film “Cool Runnings?” It was based on the true story of the Jamaican bobsled team participating in the winter Olympics.

Well, now, the Jamaican team has qualified for the Sochi Olympics.

And, now, they're trying to raise money to make sure they get there. The team has created a page on the internet crowd-funding site Indiegogo to do so.

As of Tuesday morning, they're well on their way to reaching the goal, they've already raised over $36,000 and still have over two and a half weeks to get there.

The winter Olympic Games begin on February 6th.
