Members of the Olympic Luge community are trying to help the family of Nodar Kumaritashvili, the young slider from the Republic of Georgia who was killed in a training accident on Feb. 12, as well as let his family know their shared sorrow.

Aussie slider Hannah Campbell-Pegg of Australia and Tony Benshoof, of the American team have both initiated sales of their Olympic suits with all benefits going to Kumaritashvili's family.

Tony Benshoof's auction will be signed by all 10 members of the American team. I checked this link out and it is a live eBay auction. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...
