American middle-distance runner David Torrence has been found dead in a swimming pool in Arizona.
The 31-year old who won silver for the USA at both the World Relay Championships in 2014 and the Pan American Games in 2015, switched allegiances to represent Peru at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
American runner Leo Manzano and Canadian Nate Brannen lead the hundreds of sportsmen and women to have expressed shock at the sudden event while showing condolences to his family.
May his soul rest in peace.
