Excerpt from above article:Former athletes who have died as a result of HCM include basketball stars Hank Gathers of Loyola Marymount (1990) and Reggie Lewis of the Boston Celtics (1993), figure skater Sergei Grinkov (1995) and University of Massachusetts swimmer Greg Menton (1996).
When Sergei died I was depressed for months. I was so in love with him and Katya. I just couldn't comprehend it. I have a undergrad certificate in Russian Studies along with my history concentration of Imperial Russia and I have to credit Katya and Sergei with giving me my love of Russian culture.Edited at 2008-08-27 03:34 pm (UTC)
