A luger died today during a practice run. This article says seriously hurt, but just heard on the news he died. Terrible.
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.
