To expand on this, they have canceled the entire luging competition pending a new surface or a rebuild of the track.
Where did you hear they have canceled the entire lugging competition? I haven't read that anywhere.
Sad. They just showed it on NBC. He pretty much flew off the sled, then off the track going 90 mph (FAST) and slammed into a steel pole. There was blood everywhere as they were trying to rececitate him. He pretty much died on impact.
