R.I.P Alexander Dale Oen

He died this morning while was having a shower, the reason is still unknown. This is the umpteenth death af a sportman so far this year. Aren't we able to recognize that physical human limits are simply overcame, or is there a particular and still-allowable substance that in the long run causes damages to human body?
Discuss and think what you want, but it's sure that Bovolenta, Veronica Gomez, Morosini and Dale Oen won't be anymore among us

Re: R.I.P Alexander Dale Oen

...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

So many shocking deaths of sportsmen at a rather young age lately.

Re: R.I.P Alexander Dale Oen

Really sad

The question is are there more deaths now of prominent athletes or does it just seem that way because of the 24/7 media coverage we have right now?

If there are actually more young athletes dying, is there something that can be changed with the training regimens to make sure this doesn't happen or is this just a coincidence?

RIP He even tweeted on the day of his death which makes it seem so surreal.
