Winter Olympics

A shadow was cast over the start of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, after a luger from Georgia was killed in an accident. He crashed, following which he was catapulted over a wall and slammed into a pole. A decision is to be taken whether the luge competition will proceed as planned.

  1. Oh I hadn't heard that. At one time they were wondering if there was even going to be enough snow to hold them. Hope that fear eased with all the snowstorms in this country. Would be ironic if the Olympics did not have enough snow this year!
