OLYMPIC REVIEW79 OBITUARIES DARREN SUTHERLAND Irish boxer Darren Sutherland, bronze medallist in boxing ( middleweight category) at the Beijing Games in 2008, died on 14 September in London, Great Britain. After winning his Olympic medal, Sutherland turned professional. DAVID LAUT US athlete David Laut died in Oxnard, California at the age of 52. He won a bronze medal in the shot- put at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. He also won gold at the 1979 Pan- American Games. After his sports career, he became an athletics coach. It was with great sadness that the IOC learned of the death of the Chairman of the Vancouver Organising Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games ( VANOC), Jack Poole. Poole spearheaded the city's bid for the Olympic Games, working for a decade to bring them to British Columbia. He moved to Vancouver to found his own construction business in 1963, eventually becoming one of North America's top real estate developers. IOC President Jacques Rogge, said: " It is with great sadness that I learned that my dear friend and colleague Jack Poole had passed away. Jack was a truly exceptional human being and a great ambassador for the Olympic Movement. His belief in the good that the Olympic Games would bring to Vancouver, British Columbia and Canada was second to none. It was his exceptional spirit and wise leadership that saw Vancouver win the Games and that has put the Vancouver 2010 Organising Committee in such a strong position today. At the Opening Ceremony of the Games, we will all have a thought for Jack, as the Games that he dreamt about and built finally become a reality." Poole was well- known for his philanthropic work and was awarded the Order of Canada in 2006. He is survived by his second wife Darlene, four daughters, a stepson and his extended family.
