Olympic Cool Runnings
May 29, 2012
Hosted by The Express Yourself! STAR On-Air Teen Team
What is it like to be in the Olympics and have a Disney blockbuster movie about your Olympic exploits? Steven Zhou and Youngjoo Ahn interview Devon Harris, Captain of the legendary Jamaican Bobsled Team that captured the hearts of the world at the 1988 Calgary Olympics. Cool Runnings was based on the amazing story. At the heart of Devon’s message are the lessons of the power of persistence over obstacles in order to live one's best life. His mission is to bring this message of how everyone can keep on pushing and working for their dreams every day of their lives. The Keep On Pushing Foundation which he founded in 2006 aims to support and enhance the education of kids in disadvantaged communities around the globe. He is the author of the motivational children’s book, Yes, I Can! and Keep On Pushing: Hot Lesson From Cool Runnings. Field Reporters Youngjoo Ahn and Mason Windatt bring their savvy insights to this Olympic presentation
