Cyclist Dies After Crash In Race At Paralympics


An Iranian cyclist has died after a crash during a road
race at the Paralympics in Rio.
Bahman Golbarnezhad was treated at the scene and
then suffered cardiac arrest as he was taken to hospital
and later passed away.
The crash took place on a mountainous stretch as he was
going down a steep hill during the men's C4-C5 race for
athletes with lower limb impairments or amputations.
It is not yet known what caused the incident.
An investigation is taking place after what is believed to
be the first death in a Paralympics.
IPC president Philip Craven said: "This is truly heart-
breaking news.
"The thoughts and condolences of the whole Paralympic
Movement are with Bahman's family, friends, and
teammates, as well as the whole of the National
Paralympic Committee of Iran."
Carlos Nuzman, head of the Rio Olympic organising
committee: "This is very sad news for sport and for the
Paralympic movement.
"Our hearts and prayers are with Bahman's family, his
teammates and all the people of Iran."
The Iranian flag was lowered to half-mast in the
Paralympic Village, and a moment of silence will be held
at Sunday's closing ceremony in the Maracana Stadium.
It was the second race in Rio for Golbarnezhad who
had finished 14th in a time trial on Wednesday.
The cyclist, who was born in Shiraz, Iran, had also
competed at the London Paralympics in 2012.
