(AP) Everything's cool and running with Jamaica's Olympic bobsled team.


After their equipment was delayed in arriving to the Sochi Games, driver Winston Watts and his teammates got in their first two runs down the Sanki Sliding Center track on Thursday. The team was unable to train Wednesday because their luggage and the expensive runners for their two-man sled didn't arrive on the team's flight to Russia.


Watts said the team picked up its gear around midnight.


There was one problem as Watts said Russian security opened protein containers and didn't reseal them. He was forced to brush protein powder out of his eyes after putting on his racing helmet.


The Jamaicans had to raise money in order to fund their first Olympic appearance since 2002. Watts said the team received $178,000 in donations.
