Olympic runner David Torrence -- who made the finals in the 5,000 meter race in the '16 Games -- was found dead at the bottom of a pool at an Arizona apartment complex. 

The 31-year-old grew up in L.A. -- but competed internationally for Peru. In fact, he set the Peru record for the fastest mile in 2017 with a time of 3 minutes 53 seconds. 

Torrence's body was found around 7:30 AM on Monday morning. Unclear what happened. Cops are investigating. 

The runner had moved from L.A. to Arizona a few weeks ago to train for more races.
