Nodar Kumaritashvili was a formidable competitor, beloved by all. He would have wanted America to win the medals in his place. I'm sure the slanty-eyed bastards will figure out a way to cheat as they always tend to do (12-year-old gymnasts anyone?). However, as always, good eventually triumphs over evil. America will win!

I feel that the coverage of the winter games was more than the value of someones life. Tragic... TRAGIC!! Shows how much people really care!

Formidable competitor??.....he was an inexperienced luge competitor.

Plus the International Luge Federation had checked the Olympic track prior to the games and gave their approval to VANOC. Some of the blame surely must be placed on them as well.
