 Claudia Heill





VIENNA (AP) - The Austrian judo federation says former Olympic judo silver medalist Claudia Heill of Austria has committed suicide by jumping out of a sixth-story window in central Vienna. She was 29.

The federation said in a statement that "nobody could foresee this act of desperation." It did not provide further details.

Federation president Hans Paul Kutschera told national broadcaster ORF on Thursday that Heill "was a very active person. Everyone who knew her is devastated."

Heill won silver in the under-63 kilogram category at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

Heill also won silver at the European championships in 2001 and '05, but retired one year after finished fifth at the '08 Beijing Games. She had since been working as a juniors' coach.
