Olympic watermelon helmets aren't typically part of the Olympic bobsledding, but for the Jamaican bobsled team it appears to be standard issue on Sunday. The Jamaican bobsled team has been in the news plenty. First the team needed financial help, then their equipment was delayed getting to Sochi, but the underdogs definitely have topped themselves. Watching the bobsledding live on Sunday it looked like the guys were wearing watermelon helmets. Fansided on Sunday confirmed that helmets seen at the track did have watermelon graphics on the side.

The cheer the Jamaican bobsled team got getting up to the starting point was amazing. It might have been a competition, but it seemed that athletes, teams and fans in Sochi were all pulling for the guys to do well. The only thing left to do was focus on the moment for the Jamaican bobsled team.

Win or lose, nobody is going to forget those cool looking helmets. Whizzing by at great speed and hoping to do Jamaica proud, it will be the determination and dedication of the team that gets noticed. Oh, and those hilarious helmets!
Take a look at the photo slideshow of the Olympic Jamaican bobsled team helmets! These guys definitely have a great sense of humor!
