Just a few hours after the end of the Zurich Marathon on Sunday, the Swiss Athletics Association announced that marathon runner Adrian Lehmann had died after a heart attack. Lehmann was 34 years old. Swiss Athletics wrote in a statement that he died on Saturday evening.

Lehmann suffered a heart attack last Thursday while preparing for the Zurich Marathon. It was initially announced that he had been taken to hospital in a stable condition, where he remained for medical observation. The consequences of the heart attack have now turned out to be more serious than initially assumed, writes the athletics association.

Last year, Lehmann from Bern was the fastest Swiss at the Zurich Marathon in 2:11:44 hours, which was synonymous with the Swiss championship title. He was one of the strongest marathon runners in the country; only five Swiss men in history ran the 42.195 km faster than Lehmann. In Zurich this year, Lehmann wanted to target the Olympic limit for Paris.
