The fairytale journey of Jamaica's first female Winter Olympics team hit a major bump Wednesday when its bobsleigh coach quit just days before they were due to compete in Pyeongchang.

In a message on their Twitter account the trailblazing Jamaica bobsled team announced that their driving coach — former Olympian Sandra Kiriasis — had left.

"Sandra Kiriasis has elected not to continue her position with Jamaica Bobsleigh," the statement said.

"We are deeply disappointed in her decision to leave the program. We thank her for her invaluable contribution to JBSF and contributing to the success of Jamaica's first female bobsled Olympic appearance," it added.
