Horror at 95mph: Athlete killed after smashing into concrete pillar at Vancouver Olympics (Video)

Horror at 95mph: Athlete killed after smashing into concrete pillar at Vancouver Olympics (Video)

Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili has died following a crash in training at the Whistler Sliding Centre, according to reports. 

Kumaritashvili was airlifted to hospital after crashing near the end of the course. He went over the wall of the track and appeared to hit a concrete pillar near the finish line.

Rescue officials rushed to the scene and performed chest compressions as well as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Kumaritashvili was airlifted to hospital with what were described at the time as life-threatening injuries.

An Olympic official was reported to have confirmed that the luger had died and a statement was expected to follow.

It was unclear how fast 21-year-old Kumaritashvili was going at the time of the crash, although many sliders have reached speed in excess of 90 mph on the track, which is considered to be the fastest in the world.
