In the wake of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili’s fatal crash on the luge track, American slider Tony Benshoof is auctioning off his Olympic race suit – signed by all 10 members of the US team – and selling it on Ebay to raise money for Kumaritashvili’s family.

"By auctioning one of our Olympic race suits, we hope we can in some small way show the Kumaritashvili family that Nodar will remain in the hearts and minds of those in the luge community," said USA Luge Team Manager Fred Zimny. "We were saddened by his passing and wanted his family to know that the U.S. Luge Team honors Nodar as a fellow Olympian."
