Podmore died in Cambridge on the evening of 9 August 2021, aged 24. Her death is a suspected suicide and has been referred to the coroner. Hours before her death, she posted on Instagram about the pressures of high-performance sport.

Podmore's funeral is expected to be held in Christchurch on 13 August 2021. Her death came less than 24 hours after the 2020 Summer Olympics closing ceremony, and all New Zealand Olympic athletes were required to undergo 14 days in managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) upon returning to New Zealand due to the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 response minister Chris Hipkins said the athletes would be required to apply for dispensation from MIQ to attend Podmore's funeral and would not be given preferential treatment.
