Just got this news (only my name was edited)
Cooler, you poor excuse for a badminton player...and golfer, I don't know if you heard the news. Azim passed away on Saturday from a heart attack. He was in Vancouver in a badminton tournament with his sister. Apparently he collapsed after one of his games. Fang just told me about this.
Vining, have your heard of this too?

That's really tragic! What was his condition, prior to the competition? Heart attack?

in loving memory of my beloved brother Ang Wren Zhing 26Jul1982-23May2007
My brother is a badminton lover, every Wednesday is the badminton day. He played fottball too, on every sunday. I just dont understand how could they took him away at such a young age. W.H.Y?
He went to play badminton 3 weeks ago with his frens, as usual, after work. Just after an hour, we received a call from his frens telling us he fainted in the court, and was on the way sending to the hospital. We tought he was too tired and fainted, not into our mind that he was seriously unconscious. According to his frens, he took a rest after a game, drank some water and just within a min, lying down unconscious. His frens was trying to help by doing CPR while waiting ambulance. Somehow when rush to the hospital, he was pronounced dead. His face turn purple and the lips turn black. Dr told us he died of heart attack. at age 25??!!! I read previous thread and had some ideas on the silent killer.
I can't accept the fact that he is gone, just like that, not even bidding good ye to my mum and dad. I know there is ntg much i can do to bring back my brother, just hope he could ring the alarm to the badminton lovers, pls dont push yourself to the limit. Warm up and down properly.
May all the merits transfer to my beloved brother, Ang Wren Zhing aka Gundo, may you live your new life in the land of pure and harmony.
Forever you in our heart....

badminton has an adverse effect on the body @.@

I thought I share my experience with you guys. I am 37and experienced a Supraventricular-tachycardia during a game of badminton december 2006. It was my first experience. I immediately stopped and became really nervous. I was gasping for breath and the first thought came to mind was that i was going to die.
My friend immediately took me to hospital and my heart beat rate upon arrival was 226bpm. The doctor gave me oxygen mask and very slowly the heart beat rate came down. I was hospitalised for 2 nights with sleeping drugs to calm down. I was very nervous and could not sleep even with the drugs.
After that I went to malaysia to see a heart specialist. I went through all tests including MRI. I was diagnosed as having a normal and healthy heart. But 1 of the nerves on my heart was slightly longer than normal. This does not cause problem when i was younger. But as i grow old and exercised too much and get too tired, this kicks off the heart beat to become irregular and extremely fast.
The doctor allowed me to continue to play badminton but not get too exhausted. Also gave me 1 medicine only to prevent it from happening again. But now i am too scared to play again. Even when i am jogging slowly i still have the feeling that it might happen again.

Sorry to hear that... my deepest condolence to you & family!
Totally agree with you: dont push yourself to the limit. Warm up and down properly. I think this is the main reason why i don't like to play after work cos we usually get rush to court, then play as much as we can in that limited 2 hours without warming up and get back to home with an extremely tired body & go for sleep without warming down... it's quite HURT (body)!
We will get benefit from proper exercise and vice versa if it's too much!

im sorry to hear about the sudden death of your brother. my condolences.
i just want to share to you guys that badminton is a very intense game and most probably the fastest racket sport. when you mix intensity and speed, you absolutely will require enormous physical and mental training and conditioning just to sustain the game. when we are stressed out, like after we finished our daily work for example, our body experiences massive fatigue (irregardless of our age). we need to have sufficient rest and take the right intake of food i.e. protein-rich foods and lots of fluids. Warm-ups are essentials and don't forget to include "cardio warm-ups" as well like breeze walking for about 10 to 15 mins to circulate the blood around our body. smoking will just slow down your endurance so kick the habit.
let's all enjoy playing badminton but we should be aware the risks involve in this sport.

There is another condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy that can cause near-instant death at any age. The heart muscles suddenly thicken, reducing blood flow to the point where the patient just loses consciousness and dies soon after. Unlike heart attacks, arrhythmia etc it is not brought about by high-intensity exercise - it can strike at ANY time.
A famous case was Miklos Feher, a Hungarian footballer who collapsed in the middle of a game due to this condition and died. He was in his mid-late twenties and was obviously super-fit. Just goes to show how little control we really have.

I had a bad experience of this 15 years ago when I was coaching mixed doubles to a club. I was talking on court to a female player when suddenly she just fell backwards to the floor, a trained person tried to keep her going with cpr while I rang 999..... believe it or not I was held in a queue with an automated voice.... very frustrating, it took 45 minutes before the paramedics arrived, she was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Her husband was there and could only look on, a very traumatic experience for all that evening.
She was in her 40's and had a heart attack, she had no previous warning of any problems with her heart.
It could happen to any of us at any moment so enjoy every moment that you have.
