One athlete has died, and another is in critical condition after competing in today's New York City Triathlon. A 64-year-old man died during the swimming leg of the race, and a 40-year woman was injured swimming the 1.5 kilometers in the Hudson River, and brought to Roosevelt Hospital for treatment, AP reports.

Bill Burke, director of the Triathlon, said in a statement that the prayers of the triathlete community are with the participants and their families. Last year, a dozen triathletes were hospitalized with heat stroke, and in 2008 a 32-year-old man died during the swim.

Today's men's winner was Ben Collins, who finished in 1 hour and 48 minutes. The winner for the ladies was Rebecca Wassner who clocked in at a little under 2 hours. This is Wassner's third win competing in the Triathlon.
