And only three years or so after the other medalist of both those Games, Litvinov.

Seems to be a very common theme with Soviet athletes... Much more than the GDR ones for example.

 

God knows what kind of juices they got subjected to. Or maybe it's just a picture of the Russian health care system.

Life is sometimes so cruel...

 

Today passed away Slovak ice hockey player Boris Sádecký (24 years old).

 

 

You may remember him for that incredible goal 4 years ago

 

 

He collapsed during the IHL (ex-EBEL) league match last week between Dornbirn and Bratislava Capitals and today came the news he passed away...

 

2 days before (26th October) the accident he scored a hattrick against Klagenfurt and was so smiley and happy to find back his form...
