Olympic luger killed in crash :(

"WHISTLER -- A men's Olympic luger from the former Soviet republic of Georgia crashed training for the Vancouver Winter Olympics on Friday and has died from the injuries.

Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili died from injuries suffered in the crash, German IOC official Thomas Bach confirmed."  (Clip and the rest of the story here).

I'm almost speechless - this is so terribly sad - his poor family and friends :(


  1. Truly horrible. Especially after the track being open for 2 years and nothing has happened before this.

  2. Yes, it was truly a sad day. There was a memorial for him today and then his body was going back to Georgia for burial.
