The 35-year-old was making his way back to the athletes' village with Cristian Katini on Friday when the vehicle crashed and he sustained head injuries.

Henze began competing in canoeing in the mid-1990s. In 2004, he won the silver medal in the C-2 event at the Summer Olympics in Athens with Marcus Becker.
