IOC confirms Olympic luger dies after crash | ajc.com
I am not sure that Luge track is safe. Sad to lose a world class athlete
My nephew went that way, motorcycle wreck, came up on curve at night missed it went off in the ditch and slammed his head into light pole.
They had a quick video of it from an angle where the impact didn't fully show (thankfully). All the surrounding structures were steel that should have been padded at that level. Heartbreaking for his family, and all of us.
I guess they have been having crashes on the run for the last few days, with one women being knocked out.
It is a dangerous sport and everyone knows the risks.
This is a real shame though.
Very sad. I saw the video clip. No doubt in my mind why he died.
Yeah! They know the risk, but is the track too dangerous?
Very sad for the the athlete and his family and friends.
It's been an unusual year with El Nino, they had to truck in the snow for the Olympics. It was raining today, and I'm wondering if that might have screwed up the ice on the run.
