This point of view video from the Luge track in Sochi is almost like being IN the Olympics... without the threat of a bone-crushing crash. Check this out!

This guy goes down the doubles luge track at Sochi... (he only hits close to 80 m.p.h.)

Yes, this seems CRAZY! Behind the scenes, engineers have taken special care to design this run in Sochi to avoid the 95 m.p.h. speeds reached in Vancouver at the 2010 Games with 3 uphill sections.

As you may remember it was at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver that 21-year-old Georgian athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili was killed in a crash during a practice run.
