Norwegian swimming champion's autopsy comes out inconclusive

  • An autopsy of Norwegian swimming champion Alexander Dale Oen, who collapsed and died in Arizona this week at the age of 26, has found no conclusive cause of death.

    Authorities suspected that Dale Oen suffered a heart attack on Monday at an altitude training camp.

    He was discovered by his teammates in a bathtub after a day of light training and a game of golf.

    Dale Oen won Norway’s first Olympic swimming medal after winning the silver in Beijing 2008.

    He went on to bring home the gold medal in the 100 meter breaststroke at the World Championships held in Shanghai in July last year.
