What a tragedy… A georgian luger lost his life, the result of a practice accident just hours before the opening of the games. I’m not into the Olympics like I am other sports and settings but that is one of the most terrible things I’ve heard of. Here’s a guy that is going to proudly portray his country and give meaning to all the time and resources that he and others have put into this effort to give him a shot at proving that he’s amongst the best in the world at what he does, and he dies following a horrific accident during, of all things – practice. If that isn’t a hell of a twist of fate I don’t know what is. I can’t even imagine what his family is feeling right now. Absolutely unbelievable … I just hope there’s some way his family, coaches, Olympic teammates and anyone else who had a connection with this brave young man can keep their heads about them during a time when they are supposed to be celebrating and exhibiting pride and accomplishment.
