Rome, June 11: The Italian athletics federation says that former 3,000-meter European indoor champion Cosimo Caliandro has died in a road accident. He was 29.


The federation says Caliandro was driving his motorcycle in his hometown of Francavilla Fontana in southern Italy when he collided with a car.

Caliandro captured his European title in Birmingham, England, in 2007.

A minute of silence was observed before the start of Friday's Primo Nebiolo meeting in Turin in memory of Caliandro.

Caliandro leaves his wife Graziella and two sons, Damiano and Cristian. AP
