Conrad Readman took two weeks off from his accounting job in Colchester, England, so he could enjoy the London Olympics. He was such a fan of the Games that he had tickets to events for every day of competition.
Readman, 49, died Friday of an apparent heart attack at the Velodrome. He reportedly was found collapsed in the track cycling venue's restroom shortly after Great Britain claimed gold in the men's team pursuit and women's keirin. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Readman leaves behind his mother Joan, whom he was caring for at the time of his death.
"Conrad had been looking forward to the Olympics ever since it was announced, and there was never a day he was not excited about it," his mother told the Telegraph. "He was coming home every night so excited and telling me about everything he had done during the day. ... He died doing something he loved so I am happy he was where he was, but I can't watch any of it now."
Just absolutely heartbreaking. But at least Readman was having a good time. If you're a Facebook user, you can see his photos from around the Games.
