Samuel Fisher, Goldman Sachs Investment Banker, 24, Dies After Triathalon

Police are investigating the sudden death of a 24-year-old Goldman Sachs investment banker who collapsed Sunday after competing in a Connecticut triathlon.

Samuel Fisher, a Harvard grad who was living in New York City, died not long after he completed his part of a swimming and running race in a charity competition.

He swam almost a mile and then rested 90 minutes while his Goldman Sachs teammates did the bike portion of the competition.

Fisher then ran about three miles, Stamford police told the Stamford Advocate.

Medics rushed to aid the stricken 24-year-old but were unable to revive him.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death.

Fisher was part of a Goldman Sachs team that took part in the triatholon to benefit a nonprofit group called Kids in Crisis.

He grew up in Newton, Mass., officials said.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague Samuel Fisher,” Goldman Sachs said in a statement.

According to Fisher’s LinkedIn page, he graduated from Harvard last year after working internships and summer positions at the financial firms Ernst & Young and Credit Suisse. He was the Undergraduate President of the Harvard Hillel in 2014, according to a Hillel Facebook post.
