Alexander Kaptarenko, who became the oldest Olympic relay torchbearer last December, died Saturday morning, according to Russian media reports.
Kaptarenko carried a Sochi Olympic torch in Novosibirsk for 200 meters on Dec. 7. He trained for the honor by carrying a frozen salmon.
Kaptarenko, born in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1912, competed in table tennis for decades, most recently at a European veterans championship in 2012.
The oldest 2012 Olympic relay member was Dinah Gould, who was 100.
