Fortunately the men event went ahead without no casualties, one little crash that the guy managed to get back on his luge and finish.

Was a couple of times then luger's went close to the top of the 2nd last bend.

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.

That's why you are not an athlete.

And like Dhampy said you might want to stop using a car now. That's the most dangerous thing most people in Western countries ever do. FAR more dangerous than luge.

I know, right. Even seemingly benign, in terms of physical danger, sports like...soccer or foot racing have people dropping dead from undiagnosed--undiagnosable--heart conditions.

Exactly, people die from running marathons every year in cities all over North America.

There's no reason in doing anything to the track. It can't be proven that it's faulty at this moment, and it's no surprise that he died while going 90 mph.

They DID modify the track. They added a wall where the Georgian crashed so if anyone else starts doing the same thing they don't fly off the track and hit a wall.

Does no one read the previous posts anymore?
