James Williamson's Death; Natural Causes

Niki Fisher, the late James Williamson's partner has confirmed that his death at the Absa Cape Epic was due to natural causes and no external circumstances.

The autopsy revealed that James had a pre-existing heart condition. The quote from Niki is; "It appears Jimi had a 'heart condition' - where the second chamber of the heart did not push the blood out properly - so to compensate, Jimi's ventricle grew larger," said Fisher. "This was a genetic condition. It had nothing to do with his riding."

Doctors told Niki that it was possible even had Williamson had his heart tested in recent years that the condition might not have been revealed.
