(Newser) – Jamaica's incredible bobsledding run to the Winter Olympics now has a theme song to go with it—named, appropriately, "The Bobsled Song," the AP reports. The upbeat tune by Sidney Mills and Jon Notard plays perfectly in sync with the team's 4,921-foot run in Sochi and wraps up with "Last turn, keep your head down/I see the finish line/Jamaica rock the whole town," reports Mashable. (See the 8-bit video here.) Considered a long shot to win a medal, the two-man team of Marvin Dixon and Winston Watts are aiming to recapture the thrill of the 1988 film Cool Runnings and ride the crowd-funding high that paid for country's first bobsledding Olympic appearance since 2002.
