This Disturbs Me

February 13, 2010

I read this in Bill Plaschke’s article in the LATimes about the death of Nodar Kumaritashvili, a 21-year-old luger from the Republic of Georgia:

The danger of the course was increased by the Canadians’ unwillingness to allow foreign competitors to train on it before they arrived for the Games. Going against both Olympic tradition and national reputation, the Canadians had refused to allow anyone else to get familiar with their Winter Olympics venues in hopes of keeping a home-court advantage.

So much for the Olympic spirit.  Sheesh.
