Indian Winter Olympian in Vancouver Olympics
Keshavan arrived Thursday in Vancouver, where he met an old school friend and went sightseeing, before heading up to Whistler today to try out the Olympic luge track.
“We will all be trying out the track and getting as much practice as we can. It is the fastest track in the world,” Keshavan said in an interview Friday.
There is still no luge track in India, where Keshavan was born 28 years ago 2,500 metres up in the Himalayas.
“We use the natural facilities, the natural track,” Keshavan explained. “With a few friends we get together. You beat a ski course and you beat a luge course.”
We wish him the best
