Former world 100m champion Tori Bowie dies aged 32

Former 100-meter world champion Tori Bowie passed away on Wednesday at the age of 32, according to a statement from her management company.

The American won three Olympic medals at the 2016 Rio Games and was crowned global champion in 2017.

Bowie finished second in the 100-meter dash in Rio, behind Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson. A year later, she won the world championships in London, finishing less than a hundredth of a second clear of Marie-Josee Ta Lou of the Ivory Coast.

“We’re devastated to share the very sad news that Tori Bowie has passed away,” Icon Management said in a statement on Twitter.
