Summer Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

Recommended Posts

I can't understand why it has been a top story for a week now.

 

He isn't that famous in this country.

 

He is now.

 

Yes - I must admit that after posting that I read what was going on at his bail hearing.

 

It does kind of sound like the leading detective on the case is trying to stitch him up.

Surely if you hear someone in the loo you would check the obvious candidates first before letting off four shots into the bathroom.

 

If I was burgling a house I would not start in the loo I would go for the ipads, jewelery and olympic medals not razor blades and spot cream.

Well he has bail . What are the chances he goes home and kills himself?

 

None! He's not allowed to go to his house.

 

Ok what are the chances of him going somewhere and killing himself ? :D I expect he will have minders though .

Topping himself is the honest way to go, however I fear money will decide matters.

What can they do, put a tag around his blade?

Hmm. Thinking back to 2012, other than various Brits, Pistorius was probably the second most famous Olympian/Paralympian after Usain Bolt (there's a joke somewhere in there about running but anyway...)

All this "Oscar" talk must have got the organisers of the Academy Award excited until they realised what Oscar everyone was talking about?

"We've never heard of him!"

 

Maybe if you a took a bit more notice of disabled athletes, then you would...

Maybe he will just go to a bar and get legless .

This and the Michael Le Vell affair are of no help to us poor Deathlisters. The events happen too early in the year for the potential suicide and if they make it till the end of the year they are probably not going to do it.

 

Honestly some people have not consideration.

  • Atje Keulen-Deelstra (who?)

 

Dead, but of course the non-skating, so the English speaking, part of the world completely ignored this fact. Anyway: she won one silver and two bronze medals at the 1972 Winter Olympics @ Sapporo, Japan. Not quite as impressive as her four World Allround Championship titles, mind.

Hein

I'm sure we would have heard of her had she been a figure skater.

One of my early sporting memories was of Mennea beating Allan Welles in the 1980 Olympics. Held the 200m world record for years...

Described on one website this morning as "the Italian Allan Wells". What an epithet.

Is Allan Welles the Scottish Don Quarrie?

Soraya Jiminez, who in 2000 became the first female Olympic champion for Mexico when she got the Gold in weightlifting, has died of a heart attack at 35.

 

So she can't sue anyone for putting her name and the words "drug cheat" in the same sentence, then. Maybe if they provisionally awarded strength-related gold medals at the Olympics and then agreed they'd only do the ceremony for every winning athlete who made it to the age of 70...

 

Just an idea, like.
