Jamaica's women's bobsled team will have a sled to compete with during the Winter Olympics. On her way out, Kiriasis demanded payment for the team's sled as she claims she was the one responsible for securing the funding for it and wanted compensation.
Kiriasis told the BBC: "I have never known such disappointment in this sport, in my life".
The Jamaica Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation originally announced it was "deeply disappointed" at Ms Kiriasis' move, calling her contribution "invaluable". "Ms Kiriasis" departure will not impact JBSF or its athletes' performance'. "We then reached out after receiving the information for the correct person at the Jamaica Bobsleigh Federation and began a dialogue on how we can help in any way possible".
Red Stripe USA has saved the day. Asked whether the team would be in a new sled or the same sled for competition, she said: "We'll have to wait and see". There also appears to be a disagreement about the sled, following her resignation.
Thirty years after Jamaica's first men's bobsled team competed in the Calgary Olympics and inspired the movie Cool Runnings, Jasmine Fenlator-Victorian and Carrie Russell hoped to make history this month in Pyeongchang as the country's first women's bobsled team.
The company's offer started as a clever post on social media, with Red Stripe tagging the Jamaican bobsled team in a tweet and telling it to put the new sled on the company's "tab".
It has been a rollercoaster journey for Jamaica's Carrie Russell and Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian, who competed for the U.S. at Sochi 2014 and was in tears last week as she described her joy at being a role model for black children.
If you happen to follow Red Stripe USA on Twitter, you might have seen the beverage company make a unusual and curious offer to the Jamaican women's bobsled team on Thursday.
They will need to complete two clean runs to qualify for medal competition in a field of 20 teams.
