Jamaica rekindles Winter Olympic dreams with new ice hockey team

Aug 26, 2014 | Other Sports, Sports | 0 comments

Jamaica has gone beyond bobsledding; their next plan to reach the Winter Olympics will be ice hockey. The island’s building a men’s national squad, with the hope of competing on the world stage between 8 and 20 years from now. It’s all being launched thanks to Graeme Townsend, the first Jamaican-born player in the NHL. Tryouts have already begun this weekend here in Ontario, and they’re looking at exhibition games by next summer.
