Jamaica finished in 19th position in the 20 - team women's bobsled competition at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea after Wednesday's third and fourth heats at the Olympic Sliding Centre.
Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian and Carrie Russell made history on Wednesday as the first female bobsledders from Jamaica to compete at the Winter Olympics, 30 years on from their male counterparts that inspired the film "Cool Runnings", despite plenty of upheaval in the build-up that included the resignation of the team's coach.
The Jamaican team ran into difficulty last week after their coach, German Sandra Kiriasis, a 2006 bobsleigh gold medal victor, left the Jamaican setup and took the team's only sleigh which she said belonged to her.
They follow in the footsteps of Jamaica's bobsled team at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada.

Red Cross in need of blood donations
The Red Cross is hosting a blood drive that will continue through the end of February because it's in need of blood. The Red Cross told WAAY 31 Monday, they're looking for all types of blood but O+ and O- are needed the most.
"Regardless of the issue, not having a coach, mechanical trouble, we're going to hold our heads high and keep building".
The sled arrived just in time and was given the name "Mr Cool Bolt" in homage to both Jamaican Usain Bolt and, of course, the movie Cool Runnings.
Fenalator-Victorian, who competed for United States of America as a push-athlete at Sochi 2014, served as the pilot, while Russell, who won a gold medal in the 4x100m relay at the World Athletics Championships in 2013, was used as the push and brakeman.
"It wasn't necessarily the result we were looking for", admitted Fenlator-Victorian.
They should both be strong contenders for medals four years from now in Tokyo and, if they continue on this pace, well beyond. Sadowski-Synnott managed to catch the men's freeski halfpipe final where fellow Kiwi Nick Porteous won bronze also.
We had a couple literally inches away from just putting some in, so we've got to find a way to just get those in the net. Jennifer Wakefield scored twice and was joined on the scoresheet by Rebecca Johnston, Emily Clark and Poulin.
