INDIANAPOLIS — A friend of a central Indiana man who died while competing in a water race at Indianapolis’ Eagle Creek Park says he was an avid swimmer and cyclist.
Forty-five-year-old Chris Clarke of Carmel was competing Sunday in the Indy Open Water Challenge with the Indy Aquatic Masters swimming club when he unexpectedly stopped moving.
Club program director Ben Christoffel tells The Indianapolis Star Clarke was pulled from the water by emergency staff on the scene and pronounced dead at a local hospital. It’s unclear when an autopsy will be performed.
Christoffel says his friend was an avid swimmer and cyclist who contributed to the fitness community.
Clarke was married and had three children. He was originally from Johannesburg and was the founder of Clarke Engineering Services.
