While Nodar Kumaritashvili, the Georgian luger who died in Friday's horrific crash, was memorialized during the Opening Ceremonies, the Olympic luge tragedy video, showing Nodar Kumaritashvili colliding with an upright pillar after coming off his sled, spread across Youtube as those not glued to early coverage were just finding out about the luge crash. As such, the Nodar Kumaritashvili crash video spread, time zone by time zone, as people in different parts of the world heard about the opening-day tragedy.
The IOC moved quickly to get the various luge crash videos and photos off the Internet, but there's a point at which they were fighting a losing battle. Aside from the tragic loss of life, the luge death video showed a gaping hole in common sense in the design and build of the Olympic luge track, which is the fastest luge track in history.
