    The Jamaican women’s historic Winter Olympics bobsleigh debut is in doubt after their coach quit and threatened to withdraw use of the team’s sled.

    German Sandra Kiriasis, an ex-Olympic champion, claims she was forced out when her role was changed and that she is legally responsible for the sled.

    Kiriasis wants payment for it but the Jamaica Bobsleigh Federation declined and is disputing she owns the sled.

    “I’ve never known such disappointment in this sport, in my life,” she said.
