A dark cloud has fallen over the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, with the tragic & horrific loss of Nodar Kumaritashvili. 

His loss is felt not only by fellow Georgians, but by athletes, officials, and fans in Vancouver and around the world. 

In the spirit of the Olympics, his fellow teammates have vowed to continue their quest for Olympic Gold in his honor. 

Through all of their despair, the Georgian Olympic team has demonstrated courage and bravery which is the truest and most respected display of the Olympic spirit possible.
