United States athlete Tori Bowie has passed away aged 32. Her representatives, Icon Management, confirmed her tragic death in a statement on social media and tributes have poured in from the world of athletics.

The statement read: “We’re devastated to share the very sad news that Tori Bowie has passed away. We’ve lost a client, dear friend, daughter and sister. Tori was a champion…a beacon of light that shined so bright! We’re truly heartbroken and our prayers are with the family and friends.”

A cause of death has not been released after Bowie was found dead at her home in Florida. Bowie competed in long jump, 100m and 200m and was a three-time Olympic medalist.

Bowie also won two gold medals at the 2017 World Athletic Championships held in London, again triumphing in the relay as well as winning individual 100m gold. (Reuters)
