My name is Xavier Enchomo Brown, I am a hard working person. M objective is to serve as an educator and make a difference in those people’s lives that I may come in contact with, both on and off the track. I am a self motivating individual with excellent interpersonal skills and result-driven. This helps me to have the ability to work well under pressure.  I wish to make an impact to facilitate knowledge and skills and development and growth Jamaican Bobsled. I am a person that believes in commitment, quality team work strong sense of responsibility. My achievement as an athlete…I am a former national representative for Jamaica NACAC under-23 (2004) which I was a 200 meter semi-finalist, also at the Caribbean and central American games (2006) and at this meet I came home victorious with a goal medal in a time of 20.74. In that year I became the only Jamaican to win since Donald Quarrie in 1987. At these games I also was a 4x100meter silver medalist. I went to represented Jamaica on the gold medal team at the Penn Relay Carnival in 2010. The team earned the silver medal in a time 38.7 second.  In the year 2008 I went to Brazil at the Pan America Games where I was a semi-finalist for Jamaica in the 100 meter. Finally I made the Caribbean and Central American championship (2008) where I was a finalist. I started to attend the G.C Foster College Physical Education and Sport where I was part of the Inter- Collegiate Male Championship Athletic Team in the 2013. While at this noble institution I was the sport coordinator for the year (2012-13), president of the domino association in (2012), a present member of the Jamaica Domino Association, member of the G.C Foster  track team 2012-2013. Before I attended college I was a  member of the Racers track club 2004-2009,  and the DaCosta cup football team 1999-2002. I presently coach at Camperdown high school.  I also coached the Athletic All Star Group in Australia; I coached the X-Factor track club with Angelo Young who resides in the Bahamas and Terry Manboard who is now at UTECH.  I’m a student at the G.C. Foster Collage of physical education and sports.

The next generation of Jamaican bobsled dreamers has started their preparations for the next season and we would like to take you along for the ride through our new television reality show. 

You will:

  • Get to know and learn more about the athletes-their dreams, desires and motivations
  • See strangers develop amazing team chemistry and esprit de corps
  • See how athletes train in Jamaica for the Winter Olympics
  • Learn about the history and culture of the places where the team trains and competes
  • Be treated to the drama and intrique of a long bobsled season

In short, you will get a backstage pass to see what it takes to transform a Jamaican track athlete into a world class Olympic bobsledder.

In order to realize this dream we are asking for your help. By making a pledge you will help us raise funds to get these athletes through this winter’s competitive season which will be captured on film. If things go well, we hope to continue the coverage of the team’s journey all the way to the 2018 Olympic Games 30 years after the initial run of the team in 1988.
