Tragedy at WSC

21-year-old Georgian Nodar Kumaritashvili passed away from injuries during a crash on the luge track today...

There have been several other injuries there in the last few days...
Gold medal favorite Armin Zoeggeler of Italy was among those who wiped out, along with a Romanian woman who was knocked unconscious, along with four American athletes.

They have suspended training/practice until the organizers can implement changes to "ensure a safe field of play."

Not to be morbid, but video of the crash is available here, until the IOC yanks it.
