Luger dies in Olympics crash hours before opening ceremony
February 12, 5:21 PM
A Georgian luger was killed Friday when he crashed during a practice session at the 2010 Winter Games Vancouver, British Columbia.
Nodar Kumaritashvili, 21, was near the end of the run when his sled was propelled off the track, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reports. The crash was just hours before the opening ceremony, which begins at 6 p.m., Vancouver time (9 p.m., in New York).
Kumaritashvili was slated to compete in the men's singles event on Saturday. There is no word on how the accident will affect the luge competition or the outlay of the Winter Games.
"Our first thoughts are with the family, friends and colleagues of the athlete," IOC President Jacques Rogge said. "The whole Olympic family is struck by this tragedy, which clearly casts a shadow over these Games."
The crash occurred at the Whistler Sliding Centre.
Training has been suspended and the IOC is investigating the accident.
Wikipedia on Nodar Kumaritashvilli
Nodar Kumaritashvili (Georgian: ნოდარ ქუმარიტაშვილი; pronounced [nɔdɑr kʰumɑritʼɑʃvili]; November 25, 1988 – February 12, 2010) was a Georgian luger. Kumaritashvili suffered a fatal crash during a training run for the 2010 Winter Olympics competition. He was the fourth athlete ever to die during Winter Olympics preparations, after British luger Kazimierz Kay-Skrzypeski, Australian skier Ross Milne (both Innsbruck 1964), and Swiss speed skier Nicolas Bochatay (Albertville 1992). Nodar Kumaritashvili was born on November 25, 1988, in Borjomi, then a part of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic of the Soviet Union.
The video of the accident has been removed by the IOC several times from youtube and other video site, so just in case it is removed again here's the

Although terrible and tragic, for those who observe synchs and practice semiotics you'll note the Strange Eye post from 2 days ago
Madonna 51 - Esther and Jesus Breakup, Now Seeking Jon 24 - Bill Clinton - Alec Baldwin - Britney Spears - Alexander McQueen - UPDATE
The Kabbalah Queen, Madonna [aka Esther / Madge] apparently met JON at the New York,NY film premiere of 'A Single Man'
Following that original posting we saw the death of Alexander McQueen and the Single-Man Luge accident.
The UN-I-Verse is speaking and synch IS the language and much more than just tragedy is being said. (Tragedy is simply easier to verify as it usually makes the major NEWS media)
Using the information suggested by synchs I had locked on the following information:
February 12, 2010, Vancouver, 21, RADON, Q, Mary, ASH, and Blue Man
(The above line is actually from a list of keywords that I made that were suggested by synchs)
We can today see how the keywords fit the event:
This is but one of many examples - some of which I wrote about on this blog and most of which I have shared only privately with friends and family - suggesting another level to synchromysticism and the, as of yet unintelligible, telegraphing of events prior to occurrence through synchs and semiotics.
I've also, of recent note, fit prior synch keywords to the:
CN Rail Rivers, MB Train Derailment.
(ref: An Intro to the World of Synch...)
We really need to learn how to read and understand that language!
The ABE connection:
Abraham Lincoln (the L-ION King)
born on February 12, 1809 - exactly 201 years before the 21st 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games,
was the 16th president of the USA.
4x4 = 16
So through the Jupiter Symbol:
and through the temple of Zeus replica - the Lincoln Memorial, at the National Mall in Washington DC - and the 24 is intimately connected with the "King of the Olympian Gods" Zeus (Jupiter).
There is LOTS of good info in the Post Comments of this one.
