In Arizona Swimming Pool
8/29/2017 6:45 AM PDT
Olympic runner David Torrence — who made the finals in the 5,000 meter race in the ’16 Games — was found dead at the bottom of a pool at an Arizona apartment complex.
The 31-year-old grew up in L.A. — but competed internationally for Peru. In fact, he set the Peru record for the fastest mile in 2017 with a time of 3 minutes 53 seconds.
Torrence’s body was found around 7:30 AM on Monday morning. Unclear what happened. Cops are investigating.
The runner had moved from L.A. to Arizona a few weeks ago to train for more races.
