Did anyone actually click the link? That site isn't even properly functional. Plus there's an ''about the site'' notice at the bottom that says:

FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes! this story was dynamically generated using a generic 'template' and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank 'non-specific' template for the purpose of entertainment.

Obvious fake. Everyone knows Geoff died from massive MK2 cabinet trauma during the Olympic Games stream.

Damn you for making me try to navigate the full site from my phone so that I can flag you.

Actually hey, this site works pretty well now that I installed Chrome on my Droid.

Man, you recover quickly.

I especially love how if you don't put in a last name, the subject's last name is ''Last Name'

Being an Olympian has its advantages.
