VANCOUVER, British Columbia(AP)—A men’s Olympic luger from the country of Georgia died Friday after a high-speed crash during training. IOC president Jacques Rogge said the death hours before the opening ceremony “clearly casts a shadow over these games.”

didn't they remove luge from the regular X Games awhile back because it was so dangerous?

I read how it happened, fucked up. He went off the track airborn into a unpaded pole estimated at 90+ mph. Damn.

That's like flying off a motorcycle at 100, ur done if you hit something.

Lot of training related injuries before this Olympics

They said over a dozen wrecks in practice already for luge. Some people say the course is too fast. This event might not happen this year.
