CBC’s The Fifth Estate Airs Program on the Tragic Death of Nik Zoricic

On Friday January 18, 2013, CBC’s The Fifth Estate aired a program titled ‘The Last Race’, which examined disturbing new details surrounding the high speed crash that killed Canadian World Cup Ski-Cross racer and medalist, Nik Zoricic.

Zoricic needlessly died during a fall at the finish line of a World Cup race held at Grindelwald, Switzerland in March 2012. While many have characterized Nik’s death as a “freak” accident, Zoricic’s lawyer, Tim Danson, maintains that such a characterization distorts the truth and does a serious disservice to Nik. Danson further maintains that the finish line of this race was a death trap and it is unacceptable that an athlete like Nik Zoricic can make a perfect landing, barely miss the finish line by one metre, and be killed for it.
