I wonder who constructed the bobsleigh run.
It became more of a survival training than a sport, one crash after the other and one dying in a training run shortly before the olympic games began.

Shatner was born in Canada. Kirk was born in Iowa (or on the Kelvin how ever you want to look at it).

Nodar Kumaritashvili death was an unfortunate accident. All the crashes were due to driver error.

It must have been a hell of a great two weeks out there. The Americans never seem to be lacking in their passion and unity and I have to say I admire that about them. In Canada or at least in Toronto (maybe it's a big city thing) it seems we due lack that passion and unity at times so it's was really nice to see Canadians running threw the streets of Toronto with flags decked out in red and white and singing our national anthem with pride. Unfortunately I missed the closing ceremonies because I went to celebrate our victory with Rain but I'm sure I will be able to find a copy of it somewhere. The Shat is a funny dude.

You are correct. Hockey is still Canada's game though!

Bad excuse.
Most of these drivers are professionals.
When not only one or two, but dozends of professional sportsmen crash, who all qualified for olympia, (and not only countries like Jamaica, but also big winter sport countries like Russia or the USA) it's a strong hint that the construction was a failure.

It's quite clear what the constructors intended. Instead of talking to real sportsmen who know what a good run looks like, these people in their ivory tower wanted to build the fastest of the fastest of the fastest of the fastest runs, no matter if you endager the drivers or not.

I bet Canada would win.

Canada may have got the gold in Hockey but the USA owns the medal count.

My hat is off to Canada for that hockey game, that was a great game. Congrats guys, you deserve it. USA fought back tough in the end but it wasn't enough.
