The story by the New York Times on the death of Olympic Luge athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili used an interesting progression of story.
The reporter summarized almost the entire story in the first paragraph, though added some unnecessary, but catchy and heartstring-pulling emotions into the lead.
The story first starts with the summarizing lead, followed by a more detail-oriented second paragraph that with the lead almost could be the story itself.
From there, it gives a bit of the narrative of the story, continuing to safety concerns, and then giving more background on Kumaritashvili, followed by many quotes from people who experienced the track, coaches, etc.
For this story, it seems to flow quite well and pulls at the right emotions while also giving a fair look at the story.
