BERLIN, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Olympic rowing champion Maximilian Reinelt of Germany died on Sunday at the age of 30 while skiing in St. Moritz, Switzerland, according to the German rowing team on Monday.
The statement released by the German rowing team, however, declined to announce the cause of Reinelt's death.
A gold medalist in London 2012 and the runner-up in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Reinelt retired from rowing after those Games but has worked as a doctor.
He'd planned to accompany the German under-23 team to a training camp in Spain as a doctor.
"Even after his retirement, he was very committed to rowing. His shock and much too early death makes me infinitely sad," said Siegfried Kaidel, president of the German rowing federation.
