Olympic Bobsledder Pavle Jovanovic Dies By Suicide at 43

US Olympic bobsledder Pavle Jovanovic has tragically died by suicide at the age of 43, Team USA has confirmed.

“The winter sports community has suffered a tragic loss,” USA Bobsled/Skeleton CEO Aron McGuire, a former teammate of Jovanovic’s, said in a statement. “Pavle’s passion and commitment towards bobsled was seen and felt by his teammates, coaches, competitors, and fans of the sport. He lived life to the fullest and had a lasting influence on all those who had the opportunity to spend time with him. Whether Pavle was pushing his teammates to be their best on the track and in the weight room, or brining laughter to friends, he was known for always giving 100% on everything that he focused on. Pavle’s impact on each of us will be remembered and celebrated.”

Pavle died on Sunday (May 3). He finished seventh in both the two-and four-man events at the 2006 Winter Olympics. He won a World Championship bronze medal in 2004.
