Luge Death at Olympics
The games here in Vancouver hadn’t even begun before Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili was fatally injured this afternoon after being flung from the track during a practice run at Whistler Mountain. A very sad beginning to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games to say the least.
If the above video player doesn’t work for you, use the contact form to drop me a line and I’ll email you a download link. I had the link posted but it was costing me an arm and a leg in bandwidth fees so I had to take it off. Sorry about that.
Wow, what a shocking video and image.
There is an evil foreboding as you watch the young man naively don his helmet, clueless that he will be racing to a violent and brutal death. Such a tragic and foolish way to die. Such a waste. Analogies are made between the Olympics and war. We see one here.
It is very sad kind that this of thing happend. But this is one of the many things people have learn from.
