On the one hand the spirited Tokyo Olympics ended while another shocking news has come to light. Let us tell you that former New Zealand Olympic cyclist Olivia Podmore has died at the age of 24 years, the New Zealand Olympics Committee has confirmed on Monday. Olivia represented New Zealand in Rio Olympics 2016 but she was not part of the country’s contingent in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics.
In fact, Olivia Podmore had shared an Instagram post in which she wrote about the struggles of elite competition. However, she went on to delete it later. The police said that the former Olympic cyclist suffered a sudden death at a property in Waikato on New Zealand’s upper North Island at about 4 p.m. (0400 GMT) on Monday.
In a since-deleted Instagram post, she wrote: “Sport is an amazing outlet for so many people, it’s a struggle, it’s a fight but it’s so joyous. Now the investigation is underway for further information received.
