    Mark Lenzi, the 1992 gold medalist in men's springboard, died Monday at age 43. The American diver was hospitalized in Greenville, N.C. two weeks ago after suffering a series of fainting spells. Lenzi earned gold at the Barcelona Olympics and followed it up with a bronze medal performance in Atlanta.
