Luger Who Died Video | USsPost.com:The mourning father of Nodar Kumaritashvili, the Luger who died during a training run in Winter Olympics 2010 refused to watch the video of his dying son. Nodar Kumaritashvili, the luger who died during the training session and video was first uploaded on Youtube, which was removed by Google later.
Nodar’s father told in a TV interview that he can’t watch the video of his son’s death and he also criticized the Olympics officials for managing such a fast and killing track.
Nodar Kumaritashvili, 21 year old Luger from Georgia was ready for his practicing run on one of the fastest track of the world. Nodar didn’t had any idea about what was going to happen with him. Nodar set himself on the track, and there he went. Nodar completed his first lap comfortably, but he was in the course of speeding up, he reached the speed around 90 miles per hour and an uncovered steel poll was waiting for him around the corner. He lost control and fastest track in the world smashed him out with the speed of 90 miles and he hit the unpadded steel poll and died.
The killing sliding track of Winter Olympics was opened within 24 hours of the accident. It was a modified track with 5 miles lesser speed as compare to the track that killed Nodar.
Steel beams were covered by a wooden wall to avoid any further accidents. The beams were double padded, the track was also shortened and the turn where Nodar lost control and got killed was changed as well.
Well, all the precautionary measures taken but after killing one, the questions is why the management was unable to take same safety measures before, if they would have acted before, Nodar would be having a run as well.
