Norway Swimming Champion Alexander Dale Oen Dies While Training


Quote
Alexander Dale Oen, the world 100- meter breaststroke champion from Norway, died during a team training camp yesterday in Arizona. He was 26.
Dale Oen’s teammates found the athlete collapsed in his bathroom last night in Flagstaff, the Norwegian Swimming Federation said in a statement today on its website. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead at 9 p.m. local time.


May the good Lord grant rest to his servant Alexander and mercy to his family, teammates, and countrymen.
"Hearing a nun's confession is like being stoned to death with popcorn." --Abp. Fulton Sheen

May his memory be eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Memory eternal.    :'(
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

 Memory Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Memory Eternal!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
