Throwback Thursday- Cool Runnings (1993)

When one thinks of Jamaica, one does not think of snow and ice. One thinks of bright blue seas, warm weather and beautiful beaches.

In 1988, Jamaican national bobsleigh team raced at the Olympics. Surprising many, they did well, despite coming from a tropical island nation. Their story is told in the 1993 film, Cool Runnings, starring Leon as the team’s leader and the late John Candy as the team’s coach whose reputation was far from clean.

This movie is about the underdog. We can all relate to the underdog, the one who fights against all odds and wins, even the when odds are against them.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
