A good many examples of "sudden cardiac death" associated with sport.....usually endurance events......are the result of previously undiagnosed cardiac anomolies. However, although the popular press likes to make a lot of noise when these trgedies happen, they're actually very rare events and most experts in the field don't seem to be recommending aggresive and extensive testing (which is what you'd need).......unless they want a bit o' kudos for describing something novel, that is.

Or unless they run a clinic that does this sort of testing, and they need some engine work on their mercedes.
