Clothes For Kids With Devon Harris~Jamaican Bobsled Team Member

Chelyabinsk, Russia, August 2022. A Young Mother And A Little Bo

As an original member of the 1988 Jamaican bobsled team and captain of the 1992 and 1998 teams;

3-time Olympian, Devon Harris achieved his grand dream. Encouraged by his commanding officer, Devon tried out for and was selected to the first Jamaican bobsled team. The team competed in the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada and their exploits inspired the Disney blockbuster movie Cool Runnings.

Devon’s current dream is to inspire others to achieve theirs. As an international motivational keynote speaker, Devon is tapping the same energy, determination and skills that enabled him to bobsled with the best in the world and is now sparking audiences of all ages to dream big and take their “game” to the next level.

At the heart of his message are the lessons he has learned about the power of persistence over all sorts of obstacles in order to live one’s best life.  Devon Harris’ mission is the same—to bring this message of how everyone can keep on pushing and working for their dreams every day of their professional as well as personal lives.
