Canadian Olympic 400m runner Daundre Barnaby drowned Friday in a swimming accident during a training camp in the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, Athletics Canada said in a statement.

Barnaby, 24, who competed at the 2012 Olympics and at last year's Commonwealth Games, drowned after a strong current swept him out to sea as he swam with teammates.

Athletics Canada chief executive Rob Guy described the tragedy as a "sad and profound loss."
