Disrespectful

Posted on Sun, Feb 14, 2010 at 10:48 AM

I like all the hype for the olympics, however when you've exploited someone's death you've gone to far!

I watched the opening for the olympics start to finish, thought it was pretty cool and as you may or may not know a male athlete who was to participate in the luge died while practicing.

At around 1:30 AM after the opening ceremony show, there was a short CTV NEWS clip. It talked about the incident and showed a clip of a man going down on a luge. I didn't realize that it was the actual clip of this poor young man's demise, until the last second when they showed him, and his luge fly off the slide and brutally smash into a metal beam.

I realize to some this may not sound disturbing but please believe me it looked disturbing, and it brought tears to my eyes.

Try to understand how his team mates must feel and his family back home, who probably can't do a thing. I don't feel it's right the way CTV broadcasted his death and if you agree please comment.
