Nove anni fa il suicidio di Marco Pantani in un anonimo hotel di Rimini, oggi la tragedia di un altro campione si è consumata nelle alture di Pretoria.

Il 14 febbraio 2004, Marco Pantani fu trovato morto nella stanza D5 del residence “Le Rose” di Rimini. L’autopsia rivelò che la morte era stata causata da un edema polmonare e cerebrale, conseguente a un’overdose di cocaina.
L’autopsia sul corpo del campione dopo la tragica morte e in particolare l’analisi del midollo osseo ha escluso che Pantani avesse fatto uso frequente e in quantità elevata di Epo durante la sua carriera

Il 14 febbraio 2013 Oscar Pistorius ha ucciso involontariamente la splendida fidanzata, quattro colpi esplosi da una calibro 9 hanno spezzato la vita della bellissima Reeva Steenkamp. Il campione paraolimpico sudafricano verrà processato per direttissima nelle prossime ore davanti al tribunale di Pretoria. Ancora silenzio assoluto da parte del suo entourage sulla drammatica vicenda.

Oscar Pistorius, commonly known as the “Blade Runner“, was arrested on Thursday night after his girlfriend was shot dead at his home in Pretoria.

Police declined to name 26-year-old Pistorius as the suspect but confirmed that a woman had been found dead at the scene in the upmarket Silver Woods gated community east of the capital.

We found a 9 millimeter pistol at the scene. A 26-year-old man was taken into custody,” police spokeswoman Katlego Mogale told. She declined to give any further details .

Reeva SteenkampJohannesburg’s Talk Radio 702 said Pistorius was understood to have shot his girlfriend in the head and arm, although the circumstances surrounding the incident were unclear. He may have mistaken her for a burglar, the radio report said.

The comments sparked controversy though Pistorius was quick to express his regret, going on to describe 100 meters champion Jonnie Peacock of Britain as a “great Paralympic sprinter”.

South Africa has some of the world’s highest rates of violent crime and some home-owners carry weapons to defend themselves against intruders.

Pistorius mobile phone went straight to voicemail on Thursday. There was also no response from his agent.
