The fun never stops for the Jamaican bobsled team.

Fresh off a last place finish in the two-man bobsled, Winston Watts and Marvin Dixon are still having a great time at the Sochi Olympics.

The guys are a hit in Russia. They're receiving lots of support back home where the Jamaican Tourism Board created a music video called 'It's Bobsled Time.'

The song is set to sync with the actual bobsled course.

"It is so cool that we have the most fans and friends out there," said Watts. "You know we're loving it. We have people out there that really care about the Jamaica Bobsleigh team."

Gaining worldwide fame from the movie "Cool Runnings", the Jamaican team first competed in the 1988 Calgary Olympics. They have yet to reach the podium.
