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

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

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.
