I agree with that reviewer's general assessment - showing the tape was the right choice to make - maybe not three times without warning, but showing it was important, if only to highlight the danger of the Luge track.

Many people have been injured while training on that track over the last few months (In fact, a British competitor dislocated his hip when he fell off his luge), and people have been saying that it was dangerous for months. It's just unfortunate it's taken the death of a competitor for them to alter the course.
