Olympic runner David Torrence found dead in Arizona swimming pool

The running community is mourning the death of former Cal-Berkeley standout, indoor American record holder and 2016 Peru Olympian David Torrence, who was found dead in an Arizona swimming pool on Monday at the age of 31.

He was found lifeless in the pool at about 7:30am yesterday morning in Scottsdale, Arizona, by a staff, working at an apartment block.

"Firefighters removed the male subject from the pool and he was pronounced deceased". He represented the United States for years but last year was cleared to compete for Peru, on the basis of having a Peruvian mother. Police did not suspect any foul play but local medical examiners are investigating his death. "So so sad to hear of his passing". "The track world lost a great friend and athlete today", tweeted USA Track & Field.

"David had spent the weekend with his family in Malibu, after returning from world track and field competitions in Europe last week", the Malibu Rotary Club's August 28 newsletter states.

A friend and peer, Kyle Merber, also took to Twitter to share his condolences in an emotional thread, where he shared that he was supposed to pick Torrence up from the airport in a few days to prepare for their annual September race, the Hoka One One Long Island Mile.

American record-holder Molly Huddle wrote, "Such sad news".

Torrence switched to Peru - his mother's home country - and set national records in the mile and 1,500m events as recently as June.
