This is such horrible news to report — she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay's 15-year-old daughter Trinity was pronounced dead in Lexington, Kentucky this morning after being caught in the crossfire between two unidentified groups of people.

Trinity, a high school student and sprinter herself, was not involved with either group, and was simply in the worst place at the worst time as two cars of people got into an altercation and began firing at each other.
An innocent bystander, Trinity was shot in the neck. Very quickly she was taken to a nearby hospital, but within an hour she was pronounced dead.
Tyson, an extremely well-known American sprinter, is reportedly flying to Kentucky this afternoon. He told the media:

And remember, that's not a good thing either.
Men's Health Magazine found Lexington as the least active city in the United States after studying data including how often people exercised, the percentage of households that watch more than 15 hours of cable a week, and households that buy more than 11 video games a year.
The fitness publication also took advantage of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's rate of deaths from deep-vein thrombosis — a condition linked to staying in a seated position for a long time — to come to its conclusion.
Indianapolis; Jackson, Mississippi; Charleston, West Virginia; and Oklahoma City made up the rest of America's least sedentary cities.
Seattle, however, was named America's MOST ACTIVE city, which is definitely something to take pride in. We wish we could say the same for these other lazy locales.
C'mon guys! Get up and move!
