Andy Anson, CEO of the British Olympic Association, said the group was “deeply sad” in the news of AJ’s death.

He states: “The British Olympic Association is deeply saddened to hear the death of Adam’AJ’ Rosen.

“AJ, an Olympic athlete who has played three times in Luge, was the only representative of Team GB’s sports, but his smile and warm personality made him an invaluable member of the Team GB delegation to which he belongs. Condolences to AJ’s family, loved ones, and his sports friends and colleagues. “

AJ, whose full name was Adam Joseph Rosen, became interested in the luge while watching the 1994 Winter Olympics on 9-year-old television.

After training with the Luge team in Canada, he participated in Team GB at the Turin tournament in 2006 and finished in 16th place.

Four years later, in 2010, he coincided with his first Olympic performance at the Vancouver Games.

AJ was unable to compete in the Sochi Games in 2014, but decided to join the Team GB team in Pyeongchang 2018 and reach the third Olympic event he achieved when he reached 22nd place.

Athletes soon announced their retirement from sports, but after finishing sixth at the 2009 Calgary World Cup, they set a new record in the UK with the best luge finish ever.
