Olympic gold medal winner and former Indiana University diving star Mark Lenzi died Monday at age 43, the school announced.

According to The Free-Lance Star, Lenzi died after spending two weeks in a Greenville, N.C., hospital following a series of fainting spells.

Lenzi, who won gold for the US in the 1992 Barcelona Games, served as the men’s and women’s diving coach at East Carolina University during the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons.

Lenzi excelled at diving at Indiana, winning two NCAA titles in one-meter springboard.  He earned NCAA Diver of the Year in both 1989 and 1990, and he won all three diving disciplines — one-meter, three-meter and platform — in 1989.
