THE HEART OF A CHAMPION – GEORGIAN ATHLETE LAID TO REST

February 20th, 2010 · No Comments · Social Commentary

What a waste. I just saw some coverage of the funeral of the Georgian Luger killed in Vancouver.

The thing that strikes me is that even though he may have had fear (only fools claim to be fearless), he told his father, that going slow or playing it safe was not an option. Indeed, there will be a special place in every sports fan’s heart forever. This man, epitomizes the spirit of competition, but he was failed miserably by the Olympic Committee and those morons at Whistler.

Mike Lupica had it right.

I can’t say enough about how on the mark he was.

Georgian to the Core


Competitor
