The sports world mourns the loss of a unique athlete: Adam Rosen, 37, a bobsleigh athlete, died Sunday at the age of 37 after a “fierce battle” against cancer. Rosen, nicknamed “AJ”, competed at the 2006, 2010 and 2018 Winter Sports Olympics outside Great Britain.

The British Olympic team remembered their deceased teammate on Twitter with touching words: “AJ was not only one of the greatest athletes in the British Olympic luge, but also the friendliest and most humble person you could ever meet.”
He has given bobsleigh this sport and his country all the credit. With a sixth-place finish at the Ski World Cup in Calgary in the 2008/09 season, Rosen had the best British result ever.
Andy Anson, managing director of the British Olympic Association, wrote on Twitter: “AJ” was often the only athlete from Great Britain in his sport. “But his infectious smile and warm personality made him an important member of every British delegation.” Ideas now go to his relatives and teammates.
