He had lived in the city for many years and his death came as a shock not only to the municipality but to the sports world. 

At the Liscon European Championships, which took place in early January, Almordian suffered a serious spinal injury.

He temporarily lost mobility from the neck down; however, he was slowly recovering and regaining mobility and he was back at the gym pursuing his athletic career.
