Some major injuries and hospital visits

Sadly, there have been a couple major injuries at the Gay Games. During the 5k race on Thursday an unnamed 58-year-old man suffered an apparent heart attack and had to be taken to the hospital.

On Sunday, Hector Torres (right), 32, suffered a crash on his bicycle during the Triathlon and had to be taken to the hospital. Torres, 32, had a loaded schedule planned for the Games. He was to participate in the Olympic triathlon, the 10K run, the 5K run, the 26.2-mile marathon, and also three cycling events (criterium, mountain bike and time trial.) Torres is the head coach for Tri Peak Athlete, LLC and the Central Florida YMCA. Torres competed in the marathon at the 2006 Gay Games in Chicago.
