This is so sad, at such a bittersweet moment for this poor Olympian.

Thaliand's Sinphet Kruaithong became the first male weightlifter to ever medal for his country at the Olympics on Sunday when he earned the bronze medal in weightlifting's 56-kilogram division in Rio.

During the ensuing celebration back in Kruaithong's hometown of Surin, half a continent away from Brazil, his grandmother collapsed and died during the eruption of national pride and family support.

82-year-old Subin Khongthap reportedly fainted at the live viewing party for Kruaithong's achievement, according to media reports, and never actually witnessed her grandson win the bronze medal.

At some point after collapsing, she regained consciousness and was transported to the hospital, but she died there roughly an hour later.

Just before the event, she had spoken to the local media about her grandson (below):

Thurman set all kinds of NBA records and spent 14 years in the league, 11 of which were in San Francisco with the Golden State Warriors.

He was a seven-time league All-Star, too, and became the first player in league history when, in 1974, he recorded an official quadruple double (double digits in points, rebounds, assists, and blocks).

The Warriors' team president, Joe Lacob, released a statement following Thurman's death:

"We've lost one of the most iconic figures in the history of not only our organization, but the NBA in general."

And LeBron himself tweeted a very poignant message about it (below):

Dyer released the recording on Wednesday, hoping it would help clarify the incident and explain why police opened fire on the 19-year-old.
