Tori Bowie, a 32-year-old former Olympic track-and-field gold medalist, was found dead in Florida on Tuesday, TMZ reported.
A cause of death is unclear as of Wednesday.
Bowie’s management team confirmed her death in a statement Wednesday morning on Twitter.
“We’re devastated to share the very sad news that Tori Bowie has passed away,” Icon Management said in the statement.
“We’ve lost a client, dear friend, daughter and sister. Tori was a champion … a beacon of light that shined so bright! We’re truly heartbroken and our prayers are with the family and friends.”
Bowie, an American sprinter from Mississippi, also competed in the long jump.
The track and field athlete won gold in the women’s 4 x 100m relay final at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio — as well as silver (100m) and bronze (200m) for the U.S.
Bowie went on to win the 100m race at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London.
Bowie attended the University of Southern Mississippi, where she was a standout track star and a two-time NCAA long jump champion in both indoor and outdoor track.
Outside of the sport, Bowie did occasional modeling work.
She appeared in a Valentino campaign and also posed for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue.
Bowie attended the 2018 ESPYS in Los Angeles, where she walked the red carpet in a black sequin jumpsuit.
World Athletics, the sport’s governing body, also announced Wednesday that Olympic medalist Calvin Davis died at the age of 51.
Davis won bronze in the 400-meter hurdles at the 1996 Atlanta Games — and was part of the U.S. team that won 4×400-meter relay gold at the 1995 World Indoor Championships in Barcelona.
