Just wondering why the Figure Skating Gala Exhibition was televised in the middle of the night?  It is one of the true hightlights of the Olympic Games – our gold to our ice dancers and Joannie’s true heroism.  It is a pleasure to watch the skaters again when they are not under intense pressure.  Why?  It has been shown other years at a time when viewers can catch it?

21 year old luger, Nodar Kumaritashvili from Georgia, was killed during training just hours before the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada.

Kumaritashvili lost control of his sled, went over a track wall and struck and unpadded steel pole near the finish line at the Whistler Sliding Center and was unable to be revived.
