Jamaica is sending a women's bobsleigh team to next month's Winter Olympics, 30 years after the country's men made their first historic appearance. They will be led in Pyeongchang by Jazmine Fenlator, who competed for USA as a push-athlete at Sochi 2014. The men made their legendary Olympic debuts at Calgary in 1988, which led to the making of the film Cool Runnings. Jamaica's women will be targeting a top-10 result, having finished seventh at December's Winterberg World Cup.
Two-time Olympic champion and freestyle snowboard legend Shaun White secured his place at Pyeongchang 2018 with a perfect halfpipe score of 100 to win the US Grand Prix of Snowmass. The 31-year-old American won the halfpipe titles at the Winter Games in Torino 2006 and Vancouver 2010, then vowed to return in 2018 to reclaim his crown after coming fourth in Sochi.
Rio Olympic bronze medal winning 400m relay runner Kelly Massey has marked her 33rd birthday - by retiring. Massey raced in the 4x400m heats at the Rio 2016 Games and therefore received a medal after her team-mates went on to finish third in the final in Brazil. She also won 4x400m silver at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi when competing for England. "My birthday present to myself is to hang up the spikes, sit back and enjoy everything I have achieved," she said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
