Sandals Resorts Sponsors Jamaica Bobsleigh Team for Winter Olympics 2022

Sandals Resorts International is proud to announce its sponsorship of the 2022 Jamaica Bobsleigh Team, as six fierce competitors gear up to compete this month on the world’s most coveted stage for sports. Among the highlights is a four-man team – the first for Jamaica in 24 years, with Sandals Resorts also sponsoring the qualifying team in 1998.

“Sandals has always been a champion for our national athletes, as we continue our legacy to support young competitors who aspire to represent our beloved home country, locally and on the world stage,” said Sandals Resorts Executive Chairman Adam Stewart. “We beam with pride seeing our beautiful flag waving high, showing the world that Jamaica is not only a nation of dreamers, but doers – and that truly anything is possible when heart and hard work come together. The story of Jamaican bobsleighing is simply incredible, and we are along for the long ride, cheering on this extraordinary team as they compete in this winter’s events and then pass down the torch for generations to come.”

Founded in Montego Bay, Sandals Resorts is a long supporter of athletes in training in Jamaica and across the Caribbean, through the work of the Sandals Foundation – the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts. Sandals’ support of the 2022 Jamaica Bobsleigh Team will cover the substantial logistics and travel costs required to send qualifying athletes to Beijing, as well as the additional bobsleigh events leading up to the 2023 world championship event.

The team is led by the team manager, Nelson Christian “Chris” Stokes, who has been an active member of the Jamaica Bobsleigh Team since its inception in 1988 and was part of the Olympic team that inspired the ever-popular 1993 film, Cool Runnings. For Stokes, who also serves as President and Chairman of the Jamaica Bobsleigh Federation, Sandals’ sponsorship is a full-circle moment, having started out as a Sandals Resorts team member at Sandals Montego Bay in the mid-1980’s.
