Olympic dream extinguished too soon

By now we all have heard about the untimely death of 21 year old luger Nodar Kumaritashvili from the Republic of Georgia. He crashed during a training run in his first Winter Olympics. May God rest his soul. The Georgian contingent decided to stay and compete to honor their fallen teammate. They received a standing ovation when they entered BC Place.

Last night's Opening ceremony in Vancouver was dedicated to him and a minute of silence was observed before the lighting of the cauldron. May all the Olympians stay safe.
