Austrian police reported on Tuesday that a Slovenian snowboarder had passed away, later confirming the individual to be Marko Grilc.

Grilic was in Sölden, Austria, scouting locations for a film shoot when the accident occurred.

He is said to have hit his head against a snow-covered rock and died as a result.

The authorities also stated that the Ljubljana-born sports star was not wearing a helmet at the time of his collision.

Members of the film crew attempted to resuscitate him, before the medical team declared him dead after arriving at the scene.

On Wednesday, November 24, Burton Snowboards shared a tribute to the late Grilc, writing:

"It is with an incredibly heavy heart we share that yesterday, our dear friend and Burton team rider Marko "Grilo" Grilc passed away in an accident while snowboarding.

"Our heart goes out to his fiancée Nina and their children, his family, and his friends, who all shared his love and passion for snowboarding."

Although Burton refers to Nina as Grilc's fiancée, it appears the two were already married, according to her social media profiles.

Born on July 7, 1983, Marko Grilc was just 38 years old at the time of his death.

He and his wife, Nina, share two children, and have a third on the way.

Grilc got his start as a professional snowboarder at the age of 14, landing his first sponsorship.

His contract with Burton lasted over 20 years, and he went on to become a top-ranked snowboarder.

The star of his own web series, Grilosodes, Grilc had an extremely large fanbase and was an inspiration to thousands around the world with over 249K followers on Instagram.

Grilc won World Cup gold in the acrobatic jumps in London 11 years ago.

The talented Slovenian also won a further three medals at various World Cup events.

Based off of his social media presence, Grilc spent many of his final years hitting the slopes with his family.

He, his wife, and their two kids have posted countless photos and videos of them snowboarding together.

Tributes began pouring out for the fallen athlete this week after news broke that he passed away.

The camera company GoPro, who Grilc often worked with, posted a photo of him to their social media accounts, writing: "We are saddened to hear the news of Marko Grilc’s passing.

"He was a beloved member of the GoPro family and inspired us not only as a professional athlete, but as a father and an amazing human. He was a legend and will be truly missed.

Snowboarding outlet Whitelines shared a tribute to Grilc, adding one of his more profound quotes from his most recent film, Disconnected.

"Snowboarding is so simple, you know, it’s basically just shredding down the mountain on a piece of wood," said Grilc in the film.

"Just the stoke that you get from riding, from doing a sick line, as I saw out here, it’s unreal. And I’m sure this crew of people will have stories to tell for years to come."

What happened to Medina Spirit?

MEDINA Spirit was the winner of 2021's Kentucky Derby, which took place in May.

On Monday, December 6, 2021, Medina Spirit reportedly died during a workout.

2Medina Spirit passed away on Monday, December 6, 2021 What happened to Medina Spirit?

Medina Spirit passed away Monday morning after suffering a heart attack during a workout at the Santa Anita racetrack in California.

The colt was just three years old at the time of his death.

Following his 2021 Kentucky Derby win, Medina Spirit and his trainer, Bob Baffert, faced possible disqualification after the horse tested positive for the anti-inflammatory steroid betamethasone.

According to Baffert, an ointment used to treat the colt for a skin condition contained the substance.

After urine testing on Medina Spirit, it was found that the steroids did come from a topical ointment and not from an injection, according to Lex18.

Following the Kentucky Derby, a post-race test showed 21 picograms of anti-inflammatory drug betamethasone in Medina Spirit's system, which is double the legal limit in Kentucky.

During a press conference hosted outside Baffert's barn at Churchill Downs, the trainer said he was "shocked" by the results.

"This is the biggest gut punch I've had in racing and it's for something I didn't do," he told reporters at the time.

"It's an injustice. I don't know what's going on in racing now but it's not right. I don’t feel embarrassed, I feel like I was robbed.

"We know we didn’t do it, and that’s the thing. We didn’t have anything to do with it.

"I don’t know how it got in his system, if it’s in his system or was there a mistake."

After the Derby, Medina Spirit was banned from competing in the Belmont Stakes.

Baffert was banned for two years by Churchill Downs after the horse's second positive test in June of 2021.

Who is Bob Baffert?

Born on January 13, 1953, Bob Baffert is an American racehorse trainer.

At 68 years old, Baffert's horses have won seven Kentucky Derbies, seven Preakness Stakes, three Belmont Stakes, and three Kentucky Oaks.

He began training thoroughbreds full-time in 1991, and has ever since.

Between 1997 and 1999, Baffert won the Eclipse Award as outstanding trainer three years running and was voted the 1997 Big Sport of Turfdom Award.

In 2007, Baffert was inducted into the Lone Star Park's Hall of Fame. Two years later in 2009, he was inducted to the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame.

Baffert has been married twice, and has five children. His first wife, Sherry, and he share four children together: Taylor, Canyon, Forest, and Savannah.

He married his second wife, Jill, in 2002, and the two have one child together, Bode.
