RIO DE JANEIRO: An Iranian Paralympic cyclist, Bahman Golbarnezhad, 48, died Saturday after an accident in the road race on the penultimate day of the Rio Games.
Golbarnezhad’s accident occurred during the more than two-hour C4-5 road race for athletes with varying disabilities but still able to bicycle.
He received treatment at the scene and was in the process of being taken to the athlete hospital when he suffered a cardiac arrest. The ambulance then diverted to the nearby Unimed Rio Hospital in Barra where he passed away soon after arrival.
