• Mexican Olympic Medalist Dies After Shooting


    MEXICO CITY, Jan 16, 2013 (AFP) – Noe Hernandez, who won the race walking silver medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, died of a heart attack in central Mexico on Wednesday, two weeks after being shot in the head in a bar.

    The 34-year-old ex-athlete died on his way to a hospital after he suffered two heart attacks in his home, the Mexico state government said in a statement.

    The former Olympian was at a bar called “Queen of Kings” on December 30 when gunmen shot him and several other customers, including two who died. Hernandez lost an eye in the shooting.

    No one has been detained in the case so far.
