Maratona di New York

QUEST'ANNO CI SONO stati problemi...

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Two of the 37,899 New York City Marathon finishers died yesterday after completing the race, the event's first fatalities in 14 years.
Both athletes finished the 26.2-mile (42.2-kilometer) race, according to the New York Road Runners, which organizes the annual event.
One of the fatalities was on-site, while the other occurred about an hour after the runner returned home.
``What was otherwise an absolutely fabulous day was marred by the loss,'' Race Director Mary Wittenberg said in a statement. ``There's nothing harder for us than when one of our participants doesn't make it home at the end of the day.''
The Road Runners declined to release the identities of the athletes or their finish times.
One runner who died was 58-year-old Carlos Jose Gomes of Sao Paulo, Brazil, according to New York City Police. He collapsed after completing the race and was taken by ambulance to a Manhattan's Lenox Hill hospital, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.
There were three cardiac arrests that occurred yesterday, Wittenberg said, adding that the last fatality on marathon day was in 1994, when there were two heart attacks and one death.
A year ago, professional marathoner Ryan Shay died one day before the New York City Marathon while competing in the U.S. Olympic Trials in Central Park.
