EDIT: ESPN has an updated report. new link

I called it... You wipe out during a skeleton run, you're fuked. 140km/hr or around 100/mph, with nothing to protect you. It was during his practice run too

Yep. I guess a lot of the competitors are worried about the track being too dangerous. And this is pretty good evidence.

Holy s**t, just saw the video on TSN. Scary stuff. He just hit that pole dead on and came to an immediate stop. No way he was going to survive that.
Anyone seen the Canadian love fest that was just shown on TV?

Every host country does that. That is the point of the opening ceremonies. To celebrate the history and culture of the host nation.

Well the crowd was cheering loudly for Canada (obviously cause it is in Canada) and the US cause lots of Americans probably traveled up to attend the games.
