Luger dies in Vancouver 2010

Posted on: February 15, 2010


Last week a Georgian luger named Nomar Kumaritashvili died in a Whistler luge track. This young man was afraid of this track since he first saw it. He even told his father that “what will be will be”. The young luger in my opinion already knew that he was going to die. When we sometimes put bad stuff in our head we will face the consequences of those thoughts. But in this case the luger was correct because the height of the track was not an appropriate one. The track was too small vertically and the wooden protectors were not big enough. Now thanks to the mistakes of the people who made the track one person had to die. They treated them like test run dummies, because how can you just throw some one like that in there to test the track. I think that it was a big irresponsibility of the staff. Now the luge community of the olympics are going to be scared of going in there and doing there best in a dangerous track. Supposedly the staff are working on making the track safer. That I hope their doing. R.I.P. Nomar Kumaritashvili.
