This blog from James Pearce of the BBC gives a good summary of the the issues to consider. It appears that Nodar made a mistake, but was the course to blame for the consequences?

Nodar Kumaritashvili’s death is a tragedy! Luge looks like such a neat sport, but also very dangerous at the same time. His death will cast a pall over these Olympic Games. The safety of the sport definitely needs to be addressed appropriately and immediately.
