Kumaritashvili slammed into an exposed steel pillar during his last training run at the Whistler Sliding Centre on Feb 12, hours before the opening ceremony of the Games.

An initial FIL report a day after the crash put the blame on human error by the 21-year-old and the Olympic competitions went ahead, though the starting spot was lowered to reduce the speed of the fast track and a wall was erected to cover the pillars.
