A Tribute To Nodar Kumaritashvili

A tribute to Nodar Kumaritashvili

By now, everyone should have heard of the tragic accident. Nodar Kumaritashvili, the Georgian entry for the Luge, was involved in a high-speed crash while on a practice run, and it was fatal. Since then, many people have pointed to various factors as the cause of the accident.Some say it’s because the track is too fast — the Whistler track in British Columbia, Canada is said to be the fastest in the world. Some point to  the steel bar outside the track, and indeed as you can see from the video in the link below, in the video in the link below, you can clearly see that when he lost control and fell off the track, his head hit the steel bar (the video is a little disturbing, you can see how he was thrown off the luge, and where his head hit the steel bar.)

Whatever the cause, it cannot be denied that he knew it was a dangerous sport. Can we make it safer? we certainly can. Even if we did, though it would still remain a dangerous sport. The Olympics is a celebration of excellence. The best athletes in the world compete in it, just for the honor and the glory of having contested against the best, and come out on top.Year after year, they put in months and months of rigorous training and effort, just to show us, that this year, we as humans can be higher, faster and stronger than we were last year. All of human achievement depend on that, on us being better. The Olympics send out a clear message : we can do better. We did good this year, but we can do better next year. And even better the year after next. The people who compete in the Olympics, they are proof of that. They are the new pioneers, bravely seeking out unchartered territory in the name of human achievement and progress. As is the case with pioneers, some do not return. In this article, we would like to pay tribute to one such pioneer. Rest in peace, Nodar Kumaritashvili, you will be well remembered.
