The Associated Press Updated: February 16, 2014 at 5:10 am

SOCHI, Russia — Jamaican bobsled fans have a new tune for their country's improbable run Sunday night.

The country's main tourism agency is touting "The Bobsled Song," a tune designed to sync with the two-man run of Marvin Dixon and Winston Watts.

See an eight-bit animated music video for the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r71JHunY8rI

The lyrics and "It's bobsled time" chorus follow the course of the 1,500-meter (4,921-foot) track with its 17 turns and vertical drop of 125.5 meters (410 feet).

During the last part of the course, the group sings: "Last turn, keep your head down/I see the finish line/Jamaica rock the whole town."
