India's best hope for a medal at Sochi is 31-year-old luge athlete Shiva Keshavan, who is competing at his fifth Olympics.

During his practice run at Sochi, Keshavan fell off his sled at 70 mph in a bend on the track.

But in a spectacular show of calmness and athleticism he got back on it and completed the run without any injuries.

Watch it again.

What's unfortunate is that Keshavan cannot compete with his country's national flag because the Indian Olympic Association has been banned by the IOC due to corruption charges. He will be racing under the Olympic flag.
