Just a few days ago in singapore, a triathalon athelete died after completing his course. He's only 17 and from a reputable college. He is an achieved triathlon athelete. Very tragic loss---he's the cream of the crop too. Another case of a super-fit athelete dying all of a sudden.
Remember......never neglect the warning signals your body may send out during the course of exercising!

It's always good to have a medical check-up prior to participation in exercise. I have on several occasions referred patients to cardiologists as they had irregular heart rhythms. Also, note that the risk of developing dangerous rhythms are higher when the person is having a viral infection. Certain heart valve anomalies may also worsen with intense exercise. An athlete should always have a regular physical fitness program before engaging in competition. I dont know of anyone who doesnt push himself harder when he is competing even for fun.
Look out for the next years National Sports Institute Conference 2008... there will be something on Sudden Cardiac Death.

Deputy Education Minister dies while playing badminton
KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Education Minister Datuk Razali Ismail died at the Institut Aminuddin Baki in Genting Highlands yesterday. A staff there said Razali, 59, who is the MP for Kuala Terengganu, collapsed while playing badminton.
Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said Razali’s death was a great loss to the ministry.
“I’m deeply saddened. It’s a great loss,” he said, adding he was at the institute to help with funeral arrangements.
In Kuala Terengganu, Razali’s youngest son, Khairul Ariff, 15, said he was playing computer games with his cousin when hewas informed of his father death.
“He was a good dad. He was strict, but never scolded us and always gave us advice.” Khairul said he last spoke to his father on Monday.
Razali, who was affectionately called “Cikgu Razali”, had handed a motivational book to Khairul before he left for Kuala Lumpur that day.
Khairul said his father had gone for a check-up at the National Heart Institute in July or August and the doctor had told him hewas exhausted and needed a rest. He then took a two-week vacation.
Apart from Khairul, Razali leaves his wife Datin Noraini Lob Yusof, 51; sons, Muhammad Nurazli, 30, a senior vice-president at Sime Darby; Asrul Shah, 27, an assistant secretary at the Prime Minister's Department; Khairul Amar, 21, who is studying in Los Angeles; and Khairul Anuar, 19, a student at Universiti Selangor.
Razali was born in Kuala Berang in June 1949.
He was state education director from 2001 to 2002.
He was also PTPTN chairman.
Razali was elected MP for Kuala Terengganu in 2004.

I don't think the late deputy education minister was new to badminton. I suspect that it was the first and last time he played badminton in the highlands. He probably didn't know that highlands are very demanding on oxygen. As a matter of fact, at one time the Malaysian national squad camped over at the highlands for a training stint to improve their fitness and their ability to handle very high shuttle speed.
Many Chinese sportsmen , including badminton players, go to the Chinese province of Yunnan to improve their fitness.
I was up in one of the highlands in Yunnan at about 3,900 meters last year and I tried running up some steep stairs and boy was I quite tired! But surprisingly, I fared better than many young men and women half or one third my age who were new to the highlands.

On several occasions, I've played near-competitive level badminton in Nepal.
It's incredibly energy-sapping... and when coupled with the fact that these sessions would begin at 5am (when it's 4 to 6 degrees Celsius outside) inside a closed but non-heated gymnasium, it makes for very demanding badminton!
After some long rallies, you can feel yourself go a bit woozy
That's when everyone pauses and reaches for a cup of hot tea.

The capital of Nepal, Katmandu, is really not very high at 4,300 ft although you can take in a grand sweep of the Himalaya range, from the Katmandu airport, where many peaks reach more than 25,000 ft. Genting Highlands in Malaysia is in fact higher than Katmandu by a thousand ft.
Just try the highlands in Yunnan, China with altitudes of more than 13,000 ft. Tibet in China is another highlands or rather more of a highland plateau. At 13,000 ft I can assure you your legs feel really as heavy as lead when you run up a flight of stairs.

I never played badminton in heights... Can't find a place for one T_T... In my regular mountain visit xD... I jog most in that place. It's Tawangmangu, located between East and Central Java. That place is about 1km above sea level. That was 3280ft. I myself feel more comfortable playing in those height T_T... Rather than in a hot city like my hometown or Surabaya...
Is it me or... anyone feel the same T_T... So I myself can't say that Mr Deputy is collapsed and died for having badminton in heights. It's said that he needs to rest for his last check up. Having to rest while playing badminton... I'd say he just broke in to rules.

Oops... My bad... Genting was located about 2000metres... That was 6561 ft... Nah... I'll stay with my opinion T_T... I don't know which part of genting is he xD...
