^^ the only thing they have done is put pads in front of the steel poles. bull shit, they should have a wall there or something to prevent a body to come out of the track, regardless if the sport is dangerous and hurdling yourself down ice going 140km/h. What pisses me off the most is how the media started to say inexperience was a factor. He was at the olympics for **** sakes, im pretty sure he was experienced enough. it was an unfortunate event and yeah he came out of the turn to high, so what, its still f ed up and if one of the top luge athletes crashed like that, im sure more would be done to make it safe.

^^ exactly !
What constitutes having experience ?? I'm sure he trained for a few years with many runs on the luge...
These VANOC people are just covering up the fact that the track does not have enough safety barriers...lawsuits !

The time he went from 140 km/h to 0 in a split second cannot in any way be survivable. Anything inside his body would have been crushed. Hopefully he didn't feel a thing.

100% true. It is the internal injury that decided his faith. RIP.

does anybody really feel sorry for this guy??

he chose to go down a LONG steep slide of ice. ON a sled, these Sleds have BLADES as traction points.

he died going a faster then a 140 KM/H.... ON A SLED

wearing THIN clothing, he did wear a helmut though!

I dont feel sorry for anybody that jumps off a bridge and kills them selves, I dont feel sorry for anybody that takes there motorcycle 200KM/h+ and smashes into oblivion.
especially dont feel sorry for this guy.

LOL NODAR

e30 blue,

when they build a racecar track, and one of the turns is unsafe, alot of cars crash because the turn is "unmakeable" The owners will change the track to make it safer for the drivers.
