Brian Cazeneuve: Swimming world loses another star athlete prematurely; more Olympic

Less than two years after U.S. swimmer Fran Crippen died during an open-water race in Dubai, the swimming world lost another star athlete at just 26 years old when Alexander Dale Oen passed away during a training camp in Flagstaff, Ariz. on April 30. The reigning world champion in the 100-meter breaststroke suffered cardiac arrest and was found on his bathroom floor by one of his teammates. Dale Oen would have been a favorite to win the race at the London Olympics.
