The athlete Peruvian-American David Torrence, who represented Peru in the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 and the last World Athletics London, suffered a serious accident in Scottsdale, United States. Torrence, whose mother was born in Peru and has dual citizenship, competed for Peru in the 5,000-meter at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and finished 15th.

Over the past year, Torrence has set several Peruvian records but narrowly failed to qualify for the semi-finals of the 1,500m at London 2017 and finished fourth in his last race, the Emsley Carr Mile at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting on 20 August.

Fellow athletes paid tributes to Torrence.

He was involved in the investigation into Somalian coach Jama Aden, who was arrested by Spanish police past year as part of a probe into doping.
