Jamaica’s two-man bobsleigh team of driver Winston Watt and brake-man Marvin Dixon failed to get into the crucial fourth round of competition after another poor run at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

After occupying the bottom position following the first two runs yesterday, the pair completed round three in 58.17 seconds to finish 29th out of 30 crews.

Jamaica was appearing in bobsleigh at the Winter Olympics for the first time since 2002.

Russia's Alexander Zubkov and Alexey Voevoda won the competition to give the host nation a fifth gold medal in Sochi.

Silver medallists Beat Hefti and Alex Baumann of Switzerland were 0.66 seconds back, with USA's Steven Holcomb and Steven Langton taking bronze.
