    my condolences to his family and friends, how tragic, I hope he is remembered for his smile and his innate ability to overcome obstacles. It amazes me how we can measure success by medals however when someone falters it is just as easy to measure inadequacy, what strength he must have had to overcome so much in his lifetime. Life sometimes deals a bad hand. Addiction is a disease that causes so much suffering and despair. So sad.I am s glad he had the moment to breath in the air of victory and feel sheer joy if only a for a short time. I can almost feel the exhilaration he felt as he took the silver! Rest in peace, I hope you have gold now!

    How sad! What a waste of potential for this young man. I feel sorry for his family, and those who knew and loved him, for I am sure they are grieving. He was fun to watch in the Olympics. My condolences.
