Goldman analyst dies after participating in triathlon

A 24-year-old Goldman Sachs investment banking analyst who recently graduated from Harvard died after competing in a Connecticut triathlon, the Stamford Advocate reported.

Samuel Fisher collapsed after receiving his participation medal Sunday for the triathlon in Stamford, Lt. Diedrich Hohn told the newspaper. Medics were unable to revive him

Fisher participated with co-workers in the triathlon to benefit a nonprofit called Kids in Crisis and promote team building within their downtown New York office, the newspaper said.

He swam nine-tenths of a mile before taking a 90-minute rest while his teammates competed in the bike race, then ran the 3.2-mile foot race, the newspaper said.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague Samuel Fisher and extend our deepest sympathies to Sam's family, friends and colleagues," Goldman Sachs spokesman Michael DuVally told the newspaper.

Authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death, Hohn told the newspaper.
