Death at the Olympics

Do you think the Canadian Olympics Committee was culpable in the death of Nodar Kumaritashvili on the luge track? The Mounties ruled that the death was due not so much to the track, though it had already been criticized as way too fast, but to the 21-year-old Georgian’s inexperience. But now it comes out that the Canadians restricted the amount of practice they allowed on the track to everyone but their own team. The Canadian lugers had 200 practice runs. The young Georgian only had 26. This Canadian is calling foul.
