Paul Wylie, a 1992 Olympic figure skating silver medalist, suffered a heart problem Tuesday, according to his wife, Kate.

“Paul experienced an unexpected heart abnormality while exercising with friends early Tuesday morning,” she said in a statement, according to Icenetwork.com. “He is currently being cared for by Charlotte’s best cardiac physicians. He is resting comfortably as we wait for the outcome of the tests and a treatment plan is put in place.”

Wylie, now 50, was a surprise silver medalist behind Viktor Petrenko at Albertville 1992. He was 10th at the 1988 Olympics and never finished better than ninth at a World Championships.
