(AP) Jamaica's beloved bobsled team has arrived at the Sochi Olympics without its equipment.

Driver Winston Watts said the team couldn't take its initial practice runs on the Sanki Sliding Center track Wednesday because its luggage, including the runners used for its four-man sled, have not yet made it to Russia. Watts is hoping the gear arrives soon. If it's further delayed, he plans to borrow from other bobsled teams so he and his teammates can train.

Watts said "it's a real frustrating" start to the games for him and his teammates.

This is the first time Jamaica's bobsled team has competed in the Olympics since 2002. The team has been short on funding and had to raise $80,000 to make the trip.
