Tragically 21 yr. old Nodar Kumaritashvili - Luge : Georgia ,was killed in his second training run today . Georgia is considering withdrawing it's team. I couldn't find a link for some reason..but it will be everywhere any time now.
How heartbreaking. no-one should ever forget what these athletes put on the line.
Edit : Sorry ..noticed after the fact that this was posted in the non- skating section...
What a terrible thing ..the emotional anguish the other Georgian athletes must be feeling..their friend and teammate and their own Olympic dreams gone in a flash..all the attendant grief, and the confused emotions it brings..it's all dreadful.
From a skating centric POV, I'm sending thought s of caring and strenghth to Elene.
