Luger's father says son told him he feared track

The Associated Press conducted a powerful, harrowing interview with the father of Nodar Kumaritashvili, the Georgian luger who was killed in a crash during training Friday.

Kumaritashvili's father says his son told him in a phone call from Vancouver, "Dad, I really fear that curve."

His father also said, "He told me, 'I will either win or die.' But that was youthful bravado, he couldn't be seriously talking about death."

I so feel for his family, friends and his team. I wish them peace in knowing that he was living his life fully. May time lessen the pain of their loss.
