A men's Olympic luger competing for the Republic of Georgia died Friday after a crash during a training run, hours before the opening ceremony of the Vancouver Games. He was 21. Nodar Kumaritashvili lost control of his sled near the end of his run at the Whistler Sliding Center and flipped over the track wall into a steel pole, German IOC official Thomas Bach told The Agence France-Presse. I think 90 miles an hour is a bit fast for one thing but someone has to be responsible for this crap happening. The fact that other have wreck on this track tells me something.
