A 48-year-old woman died of a heart attack during the swimming portion of an Ironman triathlon on the Caribbean resort island of Cozumel, Mexican authorities said Monday.
Rocio Alvarez Oyarzabal, a native of Guadalajara, was rescued from the sea Sunday in a state of unconsciousness and was taken to a clinic where she later died of a heart attack, the chief prosecutor in Cozumel said.
The athlete, who had the experience of other competitions behind her, entered the Ironman triathlon of Cozumel as number 1,314, the organizing committee of the event, which is part of the World Championship, said.
Cozumel’s Ironman 70.3 triathlon is contested by 1,000 athletes from all categories, and in the professional ranks had some 70 competitors seeking a cash prize of $50,000 and a shot at the 2015 World Championship.
The Cozumel Ironman consists of a 1.9-kilometer (1 1/4-mile) swimming race, 90 kilometers (56 miles) of bicycling and 21 kilometers (13 miles) of distance running.
