RIP Nodar Kumaritashvili - Luger died at Olympic games

The Olympic luger Nodar Kumaritashvili was killed in a horrific accident in an training for the Olympics yesterday. The 21 years old had been making his final practice slide in Whistler before today's competition. He lost control on on a bend as he came to the finish and flew over the rim of the track at more than 90mph/140km/h, crashing into a pillar. There had been concerns about the speed of the Whistler course, it's the fastest in the world.
Shortly before the Georgian's accident, reigning Olympic champion Armin Zoggeeler also crashed but escaped unhurt.

It's clear the course is very dangerous, in my opinion the lugers has to boycot the course.

It was shocking to see this happen.

RIP Nodar.

Re: RIP Nodar Kumaritashvili - Luger died at Olympic games

RIP

I’d like to take Roddick’s serve, Gonzales’s forehand… As well as Federer’s backhand and mental. Then I’d be world number 1, easy! No one could beat me.

Re: RIP Nodar Kumaritashvili - Luger died at Olympic games

The Olympic course is adjusted. The wall in the curve is increased and the profile of the ice is slightly modified.

Saturday's race will start.

They say it's fixed when the races start today, hopefully we can trust on the IOC and hopefully everything will good today.
