This Makes Me Angry

I just watched this disturbing video of that poor Georgian Olympian, Nodar Kumaritashvili, getting killed on the Luge training run and I have to ask, “Who the hell thought it was a good idea to put BIG STEEL BEAMS along the curve of a track?” The guy didn’t die because he flew off the track, he died because he flew off the track and immediately slammed into a BIG STEEL BEAM!

Wouldn’t it be better to put bales of straw along a curve? Even go-cart tracks know that. Is there something I don’t know about the Luge that makes how dangerous the outside of the track is supposed to be a part of the scoring system? Like some winter sliding death sport? Cause if there is, then fine, that’s part of the deal I guess.  But if there isn’t the people who designed that track should be sued and sued again, and then get the crap beaten out of them.
