SOFIA, September 7. /TASS/. The cause of sudden death of Russian water polo player Vladislav Timakov during a training session in Bulgaria will be announced in three of four days, Todor Dimov, a district prosecutor of the city of Balchik, told TASS on Monday.
Vladislav Timakov, 23, a water polo player of the Kazan-based Sintez club, died suddenly in Bulgaria on Sunday. He felt sick after a morning training session in a swimming pool. The team’s doctors and local medics failed to save him. The press service of the Russian Water Polo Federation told TASS earlier that Timakov had no health problems. "Vladislav underwent medical examination ahead of the recent aquatics championships. He was absolutely all right," a spokesman for the federation said.
"The police department in the Albena resort city is conducting an investigation. A duty officer said the incident with the Russian athlete had taken place on Sunday in the settlement of Kranevo. Local medics tried to help but Timakov died on the way to hospital in Varna," Dimov said, adding the cause of death would be established after a forensic examination in three or four days.
Timakov had been playing as centre forward with the Sintez club since 2014. Before that, he played for the Moscow region’s Shturm-2002 club.
He was a member of Russia’s national team at the recent FINA World Championships in Kazan. He was a silver medal winner of the Universiade-2013.
