A men's luger from the country of Georgia died today after a crash during training,    This is so sad.   It's already cast a shadow on the winter Olympics.  He was only 21 years old.  It just came on our news as we were watching the Olympic flame heading around Vancouver and then to the stadium.  I knew when I saw how horrible the accident was that he could not possibly survive.

I love watching the luge.... they push, and run and then jump in and zoom around the course at speeds equal to driving a truck.  Sadly Nodar Kumaritashvili never got the chance to compete....  the games do not start till this evening.   Oh dear!!!  so sad.
