Death of the Elephant
Marco Pantani, who wanted/preferred to be called the pirate, died of a Heart Attack
This may be another blemish on the sport of cycling as they investigate further and find that drugs were a contributing cause to his death.
My heart goes out to all that were close to him. It is sad for anyone to die so young, no matter what the cause.
He is just one of many professional athletes that got wrapped up in the use of drugs to reach his highest potential. It is wrong. I disapprove. But that seems to be how the athletes play the game now days.
