    Tragic news:

    At this point in time news reports available are still mostly in French and Russian rather than English, but this will likely soon change:

    Yes, I just saw this in the news section of a French judo site. No

    This is the second suicide case in 2 years involving a  famous judo player (the other was claudio heill). I hope that this trend will stop.

    MOSCOW, June 15 (RIA Novosti) – Russian judo star Yelena Ivashchenko, 28, is likely to have committed suicide by throwing herself from the 15th floor of an apartment block, the Investigative Committee said Saturday.

    The body of the four times winner of the European Judo Championships was discovered on the ground near a residential building in the Siberian city of Tyumen, the Investigative Committee said in a statement on its website. Her passport and a suicide note were also found, according to the statement.   

    Earlier the Russian Judo Federation described the death of Ivashchenko as a "tragedy."

    “Everybody who spoke to Lena was infected by her energy and began to develop a liking for this very positive girl,” the Federation said on their website. “We offer our deepest condolences to friends and family.”

    Born in the Siberian city of Omsk, near Russia’s border with Kazakhstan, Ivashchenko won a gold medal at the European Judo Championships in 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2012. She won silver at the World Judo Championships in 2008, and bronze in 2007 and 2011. Last summer she represented Russia at the Olympics in London.

    Russian Judo Star, Yelena Ivashchenko, Passed Away
    15th June 2013.
    It is with great sadness that the International Judo Community learned that Russian judo star Yelena Ivashchenko, 28, passed away.
     


    Living in Tyumen, Russia, where the World Judo Masters recently took place, Yelena Ivashchenko won a gold medal at the European Judo Championships in 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2012. Born in the Siberian city of Omsk, near Russia's border with Kazakhstan, Ivashchenko also won silver at the World Judo Championships in 2008, and bronze in 2007 and 2011. Last summer she represented Russia at the Olympics in London.

    Russian Judo Federation presented her sudden death as a "tragedy" and declared: "Her victories will remain forever etched in history, as Lena herself will live forever in the memories of all who knew her".

    The IJF offers its deepest condolences to Yelena Ivashchenko's family and friends and to the whole Russian Judo Family.
