That’s awful! I can’t imagine how devastated his family must be. 

It reminds me of the young dancer who fell into the hydraulics before the Beijing opening ceremony and they cut her number. From what I gather she can’t walk anymore – she was a world class dancer from a poor Chinese family. It’s just so heartbreaking πŸ™

Yeah I just saw this on NBC and saw the video of his run – its horrifying. I dont know why they would make the track so fast and dangerous…or why they wouldnt put padding on those steel beams….or make the wall higher. He was so young….and it’s so sad that he was so short of reaching his dream. My thoughts are with his family and friends and all of the athletes who will be competing over the next few weeks….Im sure their hearts and minds are extremely heavy.

This is such a terrible tragedy. They need to take precautions to prevent the loss of another innocent life.

what a tragic way to begin the olympics… hopefully it will only be good news from here on out.  Thoughts are with his family & friends tonight.
