There's some interesting stuff on PubMed about this.

This study has some stats - Cardiac arrest during long-distance running races

Cardiac arrest rate is 0.54 per 100,000 participants.

Male marathon runners are at most risk.

Of the 59 cases of cardiac arrest, 42 (71%) were fatal.

Danish childminder's discrimination case may redefine obesity as disability

 

If you can't be arsed reading it, the gist is a 158Kg (25 stone) childminder got sacked 'cos he wasn't able to tie up children's shoelaces.

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 00:41
