Rest in Peace.

I understand he wore a rainbow on his undershirt as moral support for his gay brother back in the States.

Scandalous that the scum Qataris are permitted to examine people's underwear in their sick moral pantomime.

I doubt we will see a transparent autopsy.

A fighter for the rights of the LGBT+ community.

The world needs more people like him.

Rest In Peace..

That is sad for his family, his company and colleagues, and the sport.

That is terrible news, so sorry for his family.

Wahl said on his subscription newsletter earlier this week that he'd gone to a clinic at the media center in Qatar, "and they said I probably have bronchitis."

"My body finally broke down on me. Three weeks of little sleep, high stress and lots of work can do that to you... I could feel my upper chest take on a new level of pressure and discomfort," he wrote.

With some antibiotics and "some heavy duty cough syrup" Wahl said he was "feeling a bit better just a few hours later. But still: No bueno."

Very sad. Sounds like a misdiagnosed heart attack. Got to be careful.

I remember when he started at SI, then he just kept moving up. Still fairly young. RIP.

I hope a full post-mortem is done to ensure there is no foul play involved as he obviously annoyed certain people in Qatar. Also any recent medical procedures should be investigated.

He felt pressure in his upper chest, a classic indication of an oncoming heart attack. I know because it happened to me, and a proper diagnosis kept me alive. Feel sorry for his wife and friends.

Not necessarily, respiratory tract infections can trigger heart attacks with some frequency, specially with other risk factors like overworking. The death is for sure a sad tragedy, but not necessarily a product of incompetence or malice.

It was a killer match, literally.

What, too soon?

It is common at his age for the first sign of heart disease to be a heart attack and death, unless he is quickly treated by someone who recognizes the symptoms.

A few friends died in their 40s from heart attacks.

One of my business partners felt really bad during a trip overseas, in BsAs and effectively stayed in bed for the last 4 days before heading home. At home, he got bypass surgery and started taking fitness seriously. That was about 10 yrs ago and he's healthier now than ever before, just by consistently walking to get over 8K steps in a day.

And two recent studies published in JAMA Neurology and JAMA Internal Medicine this September, investigated the connection between daily step count, intensity of steps and an increased health benefit.

Ref: https://www.cnbc.com/2022/10/27/new-study-on-benefits-of-walking-frequency-speed-and-how-many-steps.html

That link has more details about risk reductions for steps and speed. The study had 75,000 participants in the UK. Walking faster is important. 112 steps per minute people reduced their risks of dementia 38% in the study, in addition to the other health benefits for the 80+ steps per minute group. Don't mosey.
