Eurosport Airs 14-Minute Homage to Passed Olympic Champion Camille Muffat

European news agency Eurosport has paid homage Camille Muffat with the touching video above. The nation’s swimming community gathered for the first time this week since her passing to mourn one of its great swimming champions in Limoges as the 2015 French National Championships and World Championship Trials got underway.

The 25-year old Muffat, owner of the 2012 Olympic gold medal in the 400 free, died in March in Argentina when a helicopter she was riding on as part of a reality television show collided mid-air with another.

The video includes footage of Muffat herself, as well as those who knew and loved her.
