Nodar Kumaritashvili

The passing away of Nodar Kumaritashvili marks a somber beginning to the games. My condolences go out to his family and his teammates. I ask everybody reading this to please take a moment to honour the memory of this Georgian athlete who was never able to realize his 2010 olympic dream.

Thank you,


  1. Nodar Kumaritashvili’s death is a tragedy! Luge looks like such a neat sport, but also very dangerous at the same time. His death will cast a pall over these Olympic Games. RIP

  2. Thank you for your comment.
    As an update, the luge track has been slightly altered with increased safety precautions, including raising the wall of the track and shaping the ice to encourage the sled downwards.
