Luge Athlete dies in training at Whistler sliding centre

12 02 2010

A luge athlete from Georgia (the country), Nodar Kumaritashvili, died during a practice run at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics… He went off track and then head first into a steel pole at about 145kph.

It was on the news today – they warned it would be graphic.  Yeah, yeah…. I heard a restaurant full of people gasp… it WAS horrific.  Watching people die is strange and unnatural, but we’re drawn to watch for some reason.

The pursuit of bigger, better, faster – a think knife edge.

Pray for the safety of the Athletes and for comfort for this young man’s family.
