Puppy Adopted by Olympic Skier in Sochi Dies

ABC News' Micah Grimes reports:

One of the puppies that Olympic silver medalist skier Gus Kenworthy adopted while in Sochi for the Winter Olympics has died, his representative confirmed today. "Sochi," a female stray, died while Kenworthy's friend, Robin Macdonald, was trying to get the adopted puppies back to the United States for proper treatment, Kenworthy spokesman Michael Spencer said.

In winning a silver medal and sharing the four puppies he saved from the streets of Sochi with the world on social media, Kenworthy became a household name during the Olympics.

Spencer said Macdonald and the surviving dogs are "in transit" back to the U.S. and are expected to arrive in Denver sometime this week.
