Excerpt

I just read “Triathlons more risky for men than marathons” (Clinical Rounds, November 2017), which reported that men and women, but mostly men, are dying from cardiac arrest while competing in triathlon events. I'm concerned that we haven't done enough to prevent deaths caused by triathlons. I think that we need to pay more attention to every athlete's health before the competition. Assessing every competitor's health status beforehand might help reduce injuries and prevent deaths.
