Greek Olympian Alexandros Nikolaidis Dies At 42

Alexandros Nikolaidis, a Greek Olympic athlete and taekwondo champion, died at the age of 42 after a two-year battle with a rare type of cancer.

In a poignant message, he wrote prior to his passing away, which was published on Friday, he explained the way in which nut carcinoma took his life:

For the past two years, I have been suffering from cancer for two years. I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called nut cancer, which currently has nine out of 10 Greek doctors who have read this article, are likely to have to read this for the very first time, and are likely to find it.

The 2008 Greek Male Athlete of the Year was Nikolaidis. He was initially the favorite for the Greek team, but he ultimately won his silver medal in the 2004 Olympics which took place in Athens in the face of Moon Dae Sung of South Korea in the gold medal match.
