February 13, 2010 |

A men’s luger from the former Soviet republic of Georgia died Friday after a high-speed crash during training for the Winter Games.

The International Olympic Committee said doctors were unable to revive Nodar Kumaritashvili, and the 21-year-old died at a hospital, hours before the Vancouver Olympics’ opening ceremonies were to start.

Need to slow the tack down some. No need to be going 90mph. on a sled.
God bless his family,friends & team mates during this tough time.
