Olympic Tragedy

As today's long-awaited Olympic Games opened in Vancouver, only hours before the opening ceremonies, a luge competitor died during a practice run. Georgian athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili lost control of his sled and flew off, making impact with a nearby poll and later passing away.

My thoughts are with his family and friends, with his Georgian teammates, and with all athletes as they face the bittersweet upcoming 2+ weeks of competition. So very sad.
