Greek gymnast Anna Pollatou, who won a bronze medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, was killed in a car crash on Saturday, local media reported.

According to reports the 30-year-old, from the island of Kefalonia, died when her vehicle was involved in a collision with a pick-up truck on the road from Patra to Pyrgos in the Western Peloponnese.

Pollatou won bronze in the rhythmic team event in Sydney, retiring the following year and taking up coaching.

So sad. She was on her way to Killini to catch the ferry here to vote for her brother.
Always look on the bright side of life.
