Nekadašnji član bob tima Sjedinjenih Američkih Država i kasnije reprezentacije Srbije, Pavle Jovanović, izvršio je samoubistvo.

Ovu vest preneli su skoro svi američki mediji koji su citirali njegovog nekadašnjeg kolegu Stiva Meslera.

"Ne mogu da verujem da ovo pišem o tebi. Moja lična legenda, čovek koji je u sportu postavio standarde koncentracije, posvećenosti i truda tragično je presudio sebi u 43. godini", objavio je Mesler na društvenim mrežama,

"Pav je bio najbolji kolega kog ste mogli da imate. Znao je da vaš uspeh znači i njegov lični. To me je učio. Učio me je da vodim računa o tome kako moje kolege spavaju, da li se ispravno hrane, da li im je terapija dobra, kakva im je radna etika u teretani i iza zatvorenih vrata, da sve to bude kao kada sami brinemo o sebi", napisao je Mesler.

Pav, I can’t believe another one of these needs to be written. I can’t believe it’s you I’m writing this about. My personal legend – the athlete that set the standard for focus, dedication, meticulousness, and drive – tragically took his own life at the age of 43. You won’t have to keep going to the line with that hamstring torn in half anymore, buddy. We’ll make sure your brother, your sister, & your parents know the person and athlete you were. @TeamUSA's Pavle Jovanovic (‘77-‘20) for 6 years was the best bobsledder on the planet and I wanted to be just like him. We did everything together – from sushi in Calgary to poker in Innsbruck to wind tunnels in Maryland and too many World Cup medals to count all over the world. Together with @billschuffenhauer, B-Rock, Hays or Holcy & our coach @fingermash, we were unstoppable. When Pav was removed from the ‘02 Olympic Team by USADA & CAS, I benefitted. That guilt laid with me until Pav became my roommate, teammate, and for quite some time, my best friend. He alleviated me of the guilt, even as he fought in lawsuits (and won) to clear his name. But he buried it deep and put it on himself. Then we went to the '06 @olympics, together. Pav was the best teammate anyone ever had. He knew your success would mean his success. He taught me that. He taught me to care about my teammates' sleep, nutrition, therapy, & work ethic in the gym and behind closed doors just as much as I cared about my own. He taught me about the need for being mentally healthy – not for life, but for athletic success. And that may have been part of his downfall. What happens when the person who is best known as being 150% focused or nothing– finds the nothing becoming what they become 150% focused on? In the last era without social media to show everyone how hard you were working; when the only time an outsider understood the work you put in was when you crossed the line on raceday – Pavle was King. He WAS the standard. Today we mourn the second bobsled Olympian in the last three years. Today I mourn the second of the six men I competed at the Olympics for my country with to be laid to rest too soon. 'Bro', that’s a problem.

 "Upravo on me je učio koliko je važno biti psihički zdrav, i to ne samo zbog života, već i da biste bili uspešni u sportu... Šta se desi kada osoba koja je najpoznatija po tome da je ili 150 odsto skoncentrisana na nešto ili - ništa, shvati da je upravo 'ništa' ono na šta je 150 odsto skoncentrisana? U poslednjim godinama bez društvenih mreža koje vam pokazuju koliko naporno neko radi, kada su jedino ljudi koji vas vide kada prolazite kroz cilj shvatali koliko ste vežbali, Pavle je bio kralj. On je bio standard", napisao je Mesler.

Jovanović je 2004. godine osvojio bronzu sa Amerikancima na SP u nemačkom Keningseu, učestvovao je i na Olimpijskim igrama u Torinu 2006. godine, da bi 2011. počeo da vozi za Srbiju.

Imao je 43. godine, a rođen je u porodici srpskih iseljenika u Toms Riveru.
