Friday, February 12th marked the last day of this athlete's life. Apparently, Nodar was practicing on the luge track and due to a faulty design, veered off course, hit his head, and eventually died. Now I am not back in the States and don't have much access to American television, but I wouldn't be surprised if what journalist Milton Kent (Fanhouse--a sports website sponsored by AOL) said was true: the gravity of his death eluded NBC. So, I wanted to place something here, however small it may be, to show that people (Americans, really) do care and that he is in our thoughts.
