He's stable now but that's way too young for a heart attack.


I wonder if it was from a vegan diet and strenuous exercise.

Waaay too many 'congenital heart defects' turn up in elite sport.

Sitting on the sofa is the only way to be sure you're safe.

I agree, 'congenital' my ass. Hey, we're only human, right? Not athletes, though. They take full DIN4 pages of drugs to be up there on top, and further pages of further drugs to prevent them from the side effects. I hope he'll get well, but when your ambition becomes bigger than your body, you won't be able to conceal those side effects anymore.

For me, as an older young man, I have cut back on drinking because I know the strain it puts on my body and heart in particular, as I exercise. Sometimes if I go out drinking with friends, I feel the need to stay in and rest until I can cycle it out simply because I don’t want a heart attack. This doesn’t need to just be alcohol, but any chemicals or drugs that the body has to process rigorously. I’d rather work out and lift weights than drink anyways.
