Whoa there, cowboy. That's not evidence of the track being unsafe. If you watched the last Olympics, people flew out of control and flipped all the time on the luge track. That's called "normal". Now, after someone died, their emotions are affecting their interpretation of "normal" experiences.

Placing unpadded pillars right next to the most dangerous part of the track is a hazard though.

I saw the video on CTV last night.

I don't think you can just go ahead and blame the track so quickly. Luge is intensely dangerous, you're going as fast as a race car with the G load of an F1 car with almost nothing holding you onto the sled.

But I do think they should add some safety features. Look at downhill skiing, they have safety nets along the side of the track, they could add those to the luge track.

I used to downhill ski every year before I started university. I've seen people fly into the padded ski lift pillars. Even when you're only going 60-80km/h that hurts. Hitting something like that at 140 would be bad.

Anyway, my dad says they built a wall where the Georgian went off.

I don't want a big car, particularly. I have no need for acreage, and I don't like the fuel bills. But I don't want a small one because they're all like supermarket own-brand cola: weedy imitations of the real thing - Jeremy Clarkson

People die skiing all the time. Sonny Bono died skiing. But it not a reason to cancel skiing, unless the course is proven to be dangerous beyond the usual.

Yeah of course, but there is a flip and a FLIP. A question have you seen the vids of the other 2 runs I was talking about.

The Italian got lucky from where he came off, if was at a corner he would have been launched like the Georgian guy.

Im not sure that would have done much in the way of stopping the inevitable, i think being thrown at that speed would kill him in any instance. It also wouldn't stop his internal organs traveling so fast either.

A nasty way to go.

My god, already? I can't believe this.
That track should be removed, period. I'd rather live than even think about risking my life. That guy could've had a family, kids, a mother and father.
I don't care if it means getting gold, lives are priceless, you can't risk that.

Do you ever drive or ride in a car? Well, you just took a greater risk than lugers do.
