VANCOUVER, B.C. (WTAQ) - An Olympic luge athlete is dead after a horrific crash during training Friday. Nodar Kumaritashvili of Georgia died after he lost control of his sled near the end of a practice run. He was ejected from the course and his body hit an exposed steel support pole. The 21-year-old was given CPR and rushed to a local hospital, but ended up dying of his injuries.
