Yeah they would say that, but you have the Italian medalist who got flipped not crashed, but flipped from his luge half way down.

And the australian girl who had been temporarily knocked out when her head banged off the course after a sharp turn.

The Georgian had his luge flipped on the last turn, the question is why did it flip like the Italian's luge also.


And where was the IOC inspectors who were supposed to check the course was safe. So we cant blame the Canadian organisers 100% on this.

Somehow, in less than I day, the IOC was able to come up with a reason for the Georgian luger's death: human error. Which means the IOC is complicit in the track's unsafeness, they know it, and they're covering their asses.

To help make "human error" less of an issue, they're altering the ice profile on the track; which, of course, means that they are complicit in the track being a deathslide and are desperately trying to cover it up.

The fact they have left it open is astonishing!

Even if there's a 1 in 1000 chance it could happen again how can they justify putting the event ahead of human life?

Well, there is always risk of death in the luge, as in all sports; if you put human life ahead of sport, you wouldn't have any sports.

If they closed the luge down, then they'd have to cancel half of the Olympic games, The athletes who ski and do the triple flips in the air could easily die if they landed wrong.

The least they could do is put up a glass wall or something so the person on the luge couldn't flip over the wall and hit a NON-padded steel pole.

The only way they'd even think about closing one of the events is if someone died while participating in an event. A person dieing while training isn't enough to stop any part of the Olympics.

The only reason to close it would be if it could be proven that the track was the deciding factor. And that conclusion cannot be reached in such a short amount of time--I highly doubt there will be an answer to that for some time after the games are all over and done.

The fact that the IOC is so quick to say, after an overnight investigation, that it's not the track is suspicious in the extreme and smacks of conspiracy, but not any kind of definitive evidence.

Yeah and an Italian medalist in the previous games says its unsafe and actually flips on the course, says more about how unsafe it is.

Even that Australian woman knocked unconscious said it was unsafe too.

I guess the IOC value money over lives at the end of the day.
