Benjamin Alexander has only spent four months of his life on Jamaican soil, and yet he’s now representing his father’s birthplace in this week’s Winter Olympic Games. Yes, a Jamaican skier, it’s like “Cool Runnings” on snow, and Benji’s story is an amazing one. While he was a troublemaker of a working-class kid, Benji was smart and always had huge goals: finish university, move to Asia, become a DJ that traveled the world, and eventually, go to the Olympics. It’s a wild story that takes Benji from England to Hong Kong to DJing sex parties, and the happy ending will be found this week during the Beijing Olympics.
