Cool Runnings

in #jahm4 years ago

This excellent film was released in 1993 and was inspired by Jamaica's debut at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, a discipline totally unknown to them bobsleigh.

Cool Runnings

The paradox of the situation is that Jamaica is a country that is located in the Caribbean Sea and without tradition in winter sports.

The film begins in a selection of the men's athletic speed team in which the main candidates to qualify stumble between them and are out of the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

Summary Video

From there the film takes place in the genre of comedy and shows the progress of these inexperienced athletes in a discipline as complicated as bobsleigh.

After many efforts and overcoming a lot of setbacks, the Jamaican bobsleigh team manages to be Olympic for the first time in the history of the winter Olympic games in Calgary in 1988

Already in the Olympic winter games they made a very bad initial decline, but with the passing of the competition they began to climb some positions.

In the final descent, when he was averaging the race with fantastic partials that placed them with the best partials until in one of the last curves they lose control of the sled and begin to violently strike against the walls of the track what seemed to presage the worst Final for these 4 Caribbean athletes.

After stopping the sled and a few seconds of anguish, they gradually begin to leave the interior of the sled and cross the goal on foot with the sled on their shoulders and end up devoting themselves to true heroes.

The Jamaican bobsleigh team ended up being the sensation of the Calgary games in 1988 and the final result ended up being a simple anecdote.

A very nice movie to watch as a family to laugh and get excited about the adventure of these four Jamaican athletes.

The film ended up being a box office success raising more than usd 70 million in the first weeks and a total collection close to usd 155 million
