Jamaican Newton Marshall Finishes 13th in Dogsled Race

Congratulations to Newton Marshall and the entire Jamaica Dogsled Team. Keep up the great work.

In what is being described as a major coup in extreme sports, a former horseback-riding guide has become the first Jamaican and the first black man to take part in the gruelling Yukon Quest dog race in Alaska.

Just like the 1990s blockbuster bobsleigh film Cool Runnings, Newton Marshall has crossed all boundaries in the freezing Alaskan outback, finishing 13th in the toughest dogsled race in the world.

"It felt like climbing Mount Everest because the race spanned four different mountain ranges and along with that type of terrain, came the wind that cuts like a knife," said the 25-year-old St Ann-born man who first saw snow two years ago.

The conditions were so brutal, he felt like quitting several times but, like a rawboned, courageous Jamaican, kept on.
