Day 3. Opening and memorial

Was going to the luge track to try and shoot my luge cam picture when I heard of the crash and death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvi. Needless to say, it put a dark cloud on the day for everyone.

Ladies downhill training was cancelled for the second day in a row due to the wet snow. Going to get wetter and warmer next few days. Doubt they will hold men's downhill, but still have to show up early in case.

On a lighter note, Opening Ceremonies was broadcast in the village square on big screens. Folks were pumped and made good pics when the Canadian team came out.

A lot of sitting and waiting today. Have a feeling will be more of the same next few days.


  1. Truly tragic news from the luge venue. I cannot fathom the lack of safety features in that design. Keep the updates coming.

  2. Coming a little late out of the turn shouldn't be fatal. That could easily happen again.

  3. Love hearing what's happening up there. Love the blog. Thanks
