ORLANDO, FL (AP) — US Olympic champion sprinter Torey Boy has died after giving birth, according to an autopsy report.
Bowie, who won three medals at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, was found dead last month. She was 32 years old.
A report from the medical examiner’s office in Orlando, Florida said Bowie was eight months pregnant and showing signs of labor when she was found dead on May 2. With potential complications including respiratory distress and pre-eclampsia. The autopsy report said “natural course of death.”
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, deputies attended one area of the house in early May to “observe a woman in her 30s who had not been seen or heard from in several days.” She was later identified as Frentorish “Tori” Bowie.
Toxicology reports were negative and bipolar disorder was listed in his medical history.
Bowie grew up in Mississippi after being picked up at an early age by her grandmother. She considered herself a basketball player and only reluctantly took to the track as a teenager, where she blossomed into an elite sprinter and long jumper. She attended Southern Mississippi, where she won the NCAA championships in the long jump in both indoor and outdoor events in 2011.
At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Bowie won silver in the 100 and bronze in the 200. She then ran the anchor leg in the 4×100 team with Tiana Bartoletta, Alison Felix, and English Gardner to win gold.
A year later, she won the 100m at the 2017 World Championships in London. She also helped the 4 x 100 team win the gold medal.
