"After some distorted facts have appeared in the media concerning my departure as coach of the Jamaican ladies bobsleigh team, I would like to put some things straight", Kiriasis said in a statement on her Facebook page.
However, their dream has been thrown into doubt after Kiriasis - a former Olympic champion - walked away from her role and started a dispute over who owns the sled.
"I've never known such disappointment in this sport, in my life", she added.
"Come start time we're going to be at the top of the hill, we're going to have a competitive sled, the team is going to be ready and we'll have a good performance".
It had been reported that her decision to quit came after learning that her coaching role was to be changed.
JBSF official Kathleen Pulito told The Gleaner that team unity has improved since the departure of Kiriasis.
JBSF President Christian Stokes insisted that was not the case and the women's team, making their maiden Winter Olympic Games appearance, would not pull out of the event.
