the need for speed?

I was just getting excited for the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics, tonight, in Vancouver, Canada, and went to look up the schedule.

I'm a little nervous now, because already several people have crashed during training on the luge, and a 21-year old athlete from Georgia (the country) died after flying off the track. The track is supposed to be one of the fastest in years (an Austrian luger hits 96mph in practice), but it seems quite dangerous also, knocking people unconscious, and injuring several others...maybe we don't need to go that fast?
