The Jamaica Observer has an article on the making of a movie for the Jamaican Dog Sled Team:

The story of the Jamaican Bobsleigh Olympic team was well documented in the movie Cool Runnings. Tal Stokes and the boys demonstrated that nothing, not even the elements, were beyond Jamaican sporting endeavour back in 1988.

Now comes the Jamaican dog-sleigh team and its exploits will feature in a documentary to be released in September of this year. The idea was conceptualised by businessman Danny Melville and the film financed by Island Mogul Chris Blackwell, with Jimmy Buffett of Margaritaville as sponsor. Shot in Jamaica and Scotland, the film wrapped this week and will now undergo editing.
