    One bump because I think this story got lost in the shenanigans.

    Jesus, just 29 and someone who obviously accomplished a lot in her life. Sad.

    Any word on the impetus of the suicide?
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    There was no suicide note, and as far as I've been able to dig up, no reasons given. It is still under investigation I suppose.

    Some people have speculated it was medication related...antidepressants or perhaps even a training supplement...so many medicines with a side effect of suicide and depression that it seems to fit this kind of "out of the blue" suicide..

    Tragic Story. Terrific achievement to Olympic Silver. So pretty. This will have an awful impact on her family and friends.

    If she was on anti-depressant medication, then, yes, it could amplify suicidal thoughts before it becomes effective. This is true for Seroxat/Paroxetine, for which the severity of the side-effects can be modified by diazepam during this phase. Medical advice is essential so you don't think you're on your own.

    Terrible if this might be true - the more so 'cos it is avoidable.

    Well I've had a look at the Austrian press and if anyone does know what and why it happened they haven't said anything.

    She was given a military burial with full honours, for those who are interested.
