Errol Kerr - Jamaican Skier

In yet another story of Jamaicans capability to survive and be completely epic no matter where we are, I am forced to highlight a Jamaican skier named Errol Kerr. Now of course once you hear about Jamaicans being competitive in the snow/ice the first thought that would come to mind would be the Jamaican bobsled team which took the1988 winter olympics by storm (though they didnt medal). This team was so epic that in fact they had to make a movie off of the experience of those first set of athletes. Yes it was a comedy and yes most Jamaicans find it corny and alot of us choose to disassociate ourselves from the movie, but the fact remains it was a representation of what Jamaicans and the Bobsled team went through when they entered that event.

However back on topic, it seems that Errol is looking to go through what the Bobsled team went through by being the first Jamaican to enter in that event, in the winter olympics. But not only that, Errol looks to actually be a serious contender in the sport... Like a serious medal contender. Dont believe me? Then just believe former olympian Johnny Moseley who looked at the competition and at Errol and said that he expects that he can be the first Jamaican to medal at the winter olympics.

I dont know about the rest of my readers, but personally I am very excited at the prospect of having a Jamaican not only participate in, but actually win in the Winter Olympic. This is especially so when one looks at the fact that the closest thing that Jamaicans have to snow/ice in our island is the ice that we put in our drinks and the snow cones and ice cream that we all enjoy. We aren't just entering somebody just for the fun of it, this time we may actually win.

I dont know whats happening to us Jamaicans, looks like we arent satisfied with just being the best athletes in the world, we want it all, best skiiers, best skaters, best gymnists best everything, and I wont lie this is certainly a step in the right direction, with Kim Marie Spence's attempt at being the first Jamaican to the south pole, and Errol Kerr it seems that we are well on our way to conquering snow as well.

I salute your efforts Jamaicans... I just wish I could manage the snow as well as you guys are. Now Universal Pictures Studio, I think we need to have a chat about how you are gonna portray Mr. Kerr in cool runnings 2
