Winston Watts, the Jamaican bobsledder who lives in Evanston, Wyo., said after the first two runs of the two-man competition that "first or last, we're happy to be here."
How about 29th?
The Jamaica-1 sled, driven by Watts, moved up from last place when Serbia-1 did not start Monday's third run. The last 10 sleds missed the cut to the fourth run.
Watts and partner Marvin Dixon delivered their best run Monday, improving to 58.17 from a previous best of 58.42 in Sunday's first run. But they remained considerably behind the 28th-place Japan-1 sled.
Explaining the team's popularity with fans and athletes, Watts said, "We are a fun-loving, caring and charming people to all the ladies."
