Shiva Keshavan Crashes on Luge Practice Run, Recovers, Somehow Finishes

Think the hotel accommodations at Sochi are hard to believe? Consider the following video.

During a training run today, Olympian Shiva Keshavan fell off his sled while going 70 miles per hour… only to somehow right himself and complete the ride. 

The five-time Olympian crossed the line with a time of 1:01.64.

The Indian athlete is competing under the Olympic flag because the Indian Olympic Association is barred from participating in the 2014 Winter Games.

"If I cannot represent the country, at least I can represent the countrymen," he recently told The Associated Press.

And he certainly made them proud here.
