Alexander Dale Oen, a 26-year-old Norwegian swimmer, has died of cardiac arrest.

It wasn't long ago that he was standing atop the Olympic podium, proudly displaying his medal only days after his country was rocked by that huge massacre by a right-wing extremist.

He was recently in a pre-Olympic training camp in Flagstaff, Arizona when he was found collapsed on his bathroom floor.

He was given CPR and rushed to Flagstaff Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The cause of death is unknown.

This is so sad. He was a symbol of strength for Norway when they needed it, and now he's been cut down in his prime.

Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all of his fans around the world.
