(Reuters) - No charges will be filed in connection with the death of a British Olympic sailing champion who drowned after the craft he was sailing during training for last year's America's Cup races capsized and broke apart in San Francisco Bay, police said. Andrew Simpson, 36, a two-time Olympic medalist and father of two young boys, suffered multiple blows to his head and body and drowned in the May 9, 2013 accident involving the 72-foot (22-meter) Artemis Racing catamaran. The San Francisco Police Department investigated the incident to see if charges should be pressed in connection with Simpson's death. "There is no evidence to support a criminal charge, so there are no criminal charges at all," Esparza said.
