Winter Olympics Scare.

I was reading an article on Yahoo! News and there's been another accident at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. This time involving a two-person bobsledding team. Neither members were seriously hurt but that's not the point. What's scary is that it happened on the same track the late Georgian luger, Nodar Kumaritashvili died.

The Olympic governing body had allegedly taken safety precautions to improve the safety of the track. Particularly since the tragic death of the luger had occured during a training session. I feel that either the governing body has either not taken sufficient precautions or that the entire track itself is not safe. I understand that many sports -- including luge and bobsledding -- have high risks but one death and one accident on the same track during the same Olympics? Something is amiss. Merely my point of view, here.

A short post this time, I'm afraid.
