Let me get this clear: you are saying that Colbrelli did not suffer a cardiac arrest, yes?So you admit that Colbrelli didn't have a cardiac arrest? Why then did you mention him?
None of which are mentioned in the OP referred to (for bloody good reasons) but, hey, never let facts get in the way of saying the first thing that comes into your mind.Of course @Netserk drew the similarity to the cases of Draaijer, Oosterbosch & Co.
I know I'm an eternal optimist, but at this stage of the game I really would hope that if not every cycling fan then certainly most cycling fans know just how much bullcrap there is in the myth of the EPO deaths.But of course every cycling fan with some knowledge just thinks about those incidents and the rumored EPO cause when these coronaries seems to happen frequently again in cycling.
From the linked article:Your claim now in the OP that he did. Yet you link to a source that make no mention of it.
If anyone has any Nuerofen to spare, please, I'm serious, I'm all out at this end and this is clearly going to get more painful yet.Doctors have confirmed that Sonny Colbrelli suffered an unstable cardiac arrhythmia that required defibrillators for immediate treatment following his collapse at the finish line of stage 1 at the Volta a Catalunya Monday.
Too be fair, cardiac arrest and a heart attack are two different things. Colbrelli had a cardiac arrest which is why he had to get defibrillated to get out of the fatal rhythm. The rhythm was either ventricular tachycardia without a pulse or ventricular fibrillation. A heart attack is when one of the coronary arteries becomes blocked by a clot and that piece of the heart stops receiving oxygen.I do like it when people double down like this.
So, we're clear: Netserk says Sonny Colbrelli did not have a heart attack. It must be true.
TBF, if Dr Netserk knows the difference between the two I'd be f'ing surprised.Too be fair, cardiac arrest and a heart attack are two different things.
Its a bit sad that this news is buried in the clinic & hasn't been posted elsewhere.
linketylinkKreder is the first of two WorldTour pros to suffer serious health ailments in the past two weeks, with Nathan Vanhooydonck (Jumbo-Visma) more recently collapsing while driving and having to be resuscitated.
A 2022 study by the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai found that heart attacks have increased since the COVID-19 pandemic with the steepest rise in the 25-44 age group during the surge in cases of the Omicron variant (Yeo et al. Journal of Medical Virology, Volume 95, Issue 1, January 2023).
Yeah but it was a note of actual events in response to how press would handle impending variants, or something close to that. It's a challenge very much like the suggestions about increased heart events from other introduced "aids". Taking excessive recovery elements be they banned or squeaky homeopathic do continue the demand an athlete can endure.Hate to be that guy, but we can leave COVID conspiracies out of it
