The Luge Point Of View

The luge is probably one of the more insane events at the Olympics. At the 1964 Innsbruck Winter Games, the year luge was introduced to the Olympics, Anglo-Polish slider Kazimierz Kay-Skrzypeski was killed two weeks before the games in a practice run and in 2010, Nodar David Kumaritashvili was killed in a practice run in Whistler, Canada, even experiencing an internal decapitation as a result of the crash.
