David Torrence, Olympic Runner, Found Dead in Pool

David Torrence, Olympic Runner, Found Dead in Pool

Malibu resident David Torrence, 31, an Olympic runner, was found dead Monday morning, August 28, in a swimming pool in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Torrence, who in the past ran for both the United States and Peru-where his mother is from-competitively, had a host of accomplishments to his name.

Torrence was found dead in the swimming pool at a Scottsdale condominium on Monday.

Police are investigating the death, but say there are no obvious signs of foul play.

From 2009 to 2011, Torrence also won three USATF 1 Mile Road titles.

A hugely popular and versatile runner, Torrence also won silver medals in a U.S. vest at the 2014 World Relay Championships and 2015 Pan American Games.

David Torrence, 31, was from Malibu, CA. "He was going for #3 this year".

The organisers of next week's Hoka One One Long Island Mile, a race Torrence won in 2015 and 2016, have said they will rename it in his honour.

Torrence was born in Japan, but was raised in California and ran track at Cal-Berkeley.

Torrence was well-liked among fellow runners and fans of the sport. Competing in the men's 5,000 meters, he came in 15th.

The Olympic runner holds an American record in the 1,000-meter run and a world record in the 3,200 relay. In October of that year, 'after a night of trash talking and pasta, ' David made a bet with a teammate: "he would run a sub-4:00 mile by the end of the year; if he was successful, his teammate would have to run a naked mile".

In the world of elite running, Torrence was famous for speaking his mind - whether it was to show his emotions or to denounce performance-enhancing drugs.

Torrence took part in an anti-doping cause, and previous year he helped in an IAAF investigation about the case of coach Jama Aden for the possession of PEDs.
