Jamaica’s first ever competitor at the Winter Youth Olympics Daniel Mayhew finished in 13th position in the Monobob competition in Lillehammer, Norway on Saturday morning (Jamaica time). Mayhew, who was introduced to the bobsled event less than a year ago, stopped the clock at 58.85 seconds in his first run and then posted 58.62 seconds in his second run for a combined time of 1:57.47.
