Gold Medalist Dead, Andrew Simpson Dies on Artemis Racing AC72

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A gold medalist found dead Thursday is being remembered today. Andrew Simpson was the Artemis Racing AC72 member who died during America’s Cup training practice yesterday in San Francisco’s Bay. Artemis Racing AC72 confirmed the death of Andrew Bart Simpson yesterday May 9, 2013. Simpson was submerged roughly ten minutes after his yacht capsized. Twelve members were on board at the time. Eleven were rescued with one suffering nominal injuries.

The gold medalist was remembered for his achievements Friday. His death was confirmed by team officials in a statement yesterday. “Simpson, a British Olympic gold medalist, was one of the 11-man crew aboard Artemis Racing’s AC72 catamaran which capsized during training on San Francisco Bay ahead of this summer’s America’s Cup. All other crewmembers are accounted for.”

Because of the yacht’ movement, Simpson was completely trapped and unable to break free, officials told news. “Simpson, however, was trapped underneath the boat and despite attempts to revive him by doctors afloat and subsequently ashore, his life was lost.”

His team has yet to indicate what caused the yacht to flip. “‘We had a tragic day today on the bay. Our thoughts are with Andrew Simpson’s wife and kids and also with the rest of the team. This is a shocking experience to go through”.

Simpson won the Olympic goal in 2008 and silver in the last games. “Moving the family to San Fran for 6 months is pretty hectic!!!,” Simpson told news just in March “The cup should be fun though!!”

“The entire Artemis team is devastated by what happened,” CEO Paul Cayard said in a statement to news yesterday. “Our heartfelt condolences are with Andrew’s wife and family.”
