Kumaritashvili Nodar Luger

What a terrible way to go out and he was so young. An investigation will have to be made to see if that Canadian track is too fast, also why that pole was not padded or corner not netted.

Attached Image QUOTE
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -  The IOC has confirmed that a men's Olympic luger from the country of Georgia has died after a crash during training. The International Olympic Committee says doctors were unable to revive Nodar Kumaritashvili, and the 21-year-old died at a hospital. IOC president Jacques Rogge says the death "clearly casts a shadow over these games." Kumaritashvili lost control of his sled, went over the track wall and struck an unpadded steel pole near the finish line at Whistler Sliding Center.  The track is considered the fastest in the world, with speeds reaching 95 mph in training this week.

I think the athletes are pushing it too hard because earlier in the day an Italian had also an accident when he lost control of the sled, a Romanian and also few Americans. I think they're probably over the top and pushing themselves to the max!
