    Oh my goodness, that is young. I remember his 3 meter win, right after I'd thought that the US wasn't likely to have another male winner soon after Louganis. How sad for his wife and family.

    How horrible. Coincidentally, I was just watching Lenzi on YouTube a few nights ago.

    43? So young.

    He was a wonderful diver.
    I hope they discover the underlying cause of what led to his death.
    Condolences to his family, friends and the diving community.
