    Alexander Dale Oen: won the 100m breast stroke at the World Championships in Shanghai last July


    Norwegian swimming world champion Alexander Dale Oen has died at a training camp in Flagstaff, Arizona at the age of 26. Norwegian swimming federation president Per Rune Eknes announced that Dale Oen died after apparently suffering a cardiac arrest.
    The federation said in a statement that the 100 metre breast stroke world champion was found collapsed on the floor of his bathroom on Monday. He was taken to the Flagstaff Medical Center.
    Hospital spokeswoman Starla Collins confirmed the death, but did not provide further details.
    The Norwegian team coach Petter Lovberg told VG Nett - Forsiden - VG Nett "We are all in shock, this is an out-of-body experience for the whole team over here.
    "Our thoughts go out to his family who have lost Alexander too early. Words cannot describe the grief they must feel.
    "For us here in Flagstaff it is important now that we stand together and take care of each other. It is an unreal situation and we have some tough days ahead."
    Dale Oen won the 100m breast stroke at the World Championships in Shanghai last July and took silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He was one of Norway's top medal hopes for the London Games.

    This is so sad. What's with all these athletes dropping dead at 25/26?

    26 and cardiac arrest? How awful, that's way too young to die.

    Lots of fit young people die every week from heart problems they didn't know about. It's a horrible thing. Poor guy.
