After-hours Visit to Calgary Bobsled Track Leads to 2 Deaths

Stupid is as stupid does...

I've done some crazy and stupid things in my life but never would I have ever thought of taking a tobaggan down a professional bobsled luge.

Original Article

Quote:
Police say two young men died and six others were injured after using their personal sled/toboggan to go down a luge-bobsled track after hours at the Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

Calgary police said Saturday that emergency crews received a call from an employee at the WinSport Canada facility in northwest Calgary at 1:30 a.m. after a report of several injured people on a closed track.

Insp. Kelly Campbell says that part way down the track the male teenagers hit a large gate that's used to separate the luge and bobsled tracks.

Police are investigating how they entered the property.

WinSport Canada owns and operates Canada Olympic Park, which hosted events during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Several World Cup events are held at the site as well.

Now they and the kids who drank racing fuel can meet up and party in the afterlife.

If only we had CVR of this......

[Sipping Canadian Rye Whiskey]
"I've got a great idea, eh. Let's toboggan down that hill."
"Fuck that, hoser! What are you... five?"
[Sips more whiskey]
"Fine, fine. We'll toboggan behind my.... my 4-by, friend!"
"Ha ha ha ha! Whatever, buddy! I could toboggan behind... behind... a jet engine!"
"Really, guy?!? Well I just happen to know of a gate... to the... to the old Olympic..... place."
"Bullshit, eh..."
[1 hour & much whiskey later...]
"Wow, that's... uh... really steep, eh."
(Seeing double, depth perception skewed) "Nah!!! This is nothing, friend!!! Let's go!"
[Pulls friend onto the toboggan with him]
"I'm not your friend, buddy!!!!"
"AAHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I'm not your buddy, guy!!!!!"

CRASH

Would love to see pictures. My imagination is running wild. I wish I had gone when I heard of it and tried to read any blood splatters.

That's how nature weeds out the stupid teens and hopefully the ones remaining are turning into smarter adults.

Re: After-hours Visit to Calgary Bobsled Track Leads to 2 Deaths

From the latest news, the two that died worked at the track last summer. What happened was they went sliding down the bobsled run and ran dead on into a gate that separates the bobsled from the luge areas. It's assuming they were going at least 70 kph (43mph) if not faster and all came to a sudden stop.

I've been looking for pics but nothing anywhere (thought there would be some on facebook or snapchat but then I realized they were all pretty fucked up)

Funny part: There is a gym on the site that overlooks the run. It's where all the "who's who" of Calgary Sports Elite like to work out. On the news they were complaining that since it overlooks the track it is upsetting them and hurting their training.

Re: After-hours Visit to Calgary Bobsled Track Leads to 2 Deaths

What makes this even more tragic is that the two who died were twins. I have twin sons, just a couple of years younger than these two, and I hope they'll never do anything as fucking stupid as this.

Re: After-hours Visit to Calgary Bobsled Track Leads to 2 Deaths

If I were going to make a run like that...

I would have to - first - inspect the entire track to make sure that it was safe and clear of any obstructions.

Going that fast, even some repair materials or cleaning supplies inadvertently left behind could spell disaster.
