Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian (born August 29, 1985) is an America-born bobsledder who was one of three pilots of the U.S. Olympic Bobsled team for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi before opting to compete for her father's native country of Jamaica from 2016.

Fenlator grew up in Wayne, New Jersey and graduated from Wayne Valley High School.[1] She is a majority member of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls in New Jersey.

Fenlator became involved in the sport of bobsled in September 2007.

Fenlator graduated from Rider University with a bachelor's degree in multimedia communications and advertising. At Rider, Jazmine competed on the track and field team specializing in shot put, discus, and hammer. Upon graduating from Rider in 2007, Fenlator’s track coach suggested she try a bobsled camp.[2]

In 2011, Jazmine's family nearly lost their home in Hurricane Irene.[3]

After spending a few years as a brakeman, Fenlator decided to make the switch to the driver’s seat. By her third season as a pilot, she had already earned two World Cup medals – silver in Lake Placid, N.Y. and bronze in Igls, Austria.[4]

Jazmine was named as one of three pilots of the U.S. Olympic Bobsled team for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.[5]
