Triathletes Die At More Than Twice The Rate Of Marathon Runners

It has been nearly 8 years since I discussed the 2 friends that died right after the swimming portion of a triathlon.  I postulated that the coldness of the water had an effect of the heart which no amount of training could mitigate.  And with more and more scientific scrutiny over those 8 years I have been proven correct.  I have always been a keen, observant scientist.  And never a swimmer.

RIP Bob Potts and Dr. Mike Conte.

Mike Conte, right, next to group friend Pat Davey at the Dogwood Relays.
