Yes. They are able to do a higher performance in physical tasks, but high level elite athletes train up till the edge of what their bodies can sustain. They are at a higher risk of heart failure and their immune system is usually weakened.

Doing moderate sports is healthy, but extremes are never good for your body, neither being an extreme couch potato nor being an extreme athlete.

What Dreams May Come

In a moment like this, it's a common thing to overreact about something as natural as somebody passing. We just have to appreciate life way more than we'll fear death, but this is understandably hard. The idea of all of Shane thoughts, ideas, love for his friends and relatives, emotional moments, his personality are gone forever along his material body is mind boggling. He just have changed from this organization to another.

This is the material world and to worry about material matters is a natural thing. That will include taking care of health, fitness, looks, but we are not those things or those things only.

We all have our expiration date, within a century to be optimistic, so it's up to us to correct our own track by the minute to make it worthy. As Hex mentioned, people easily forget about their own mortality. We came from somewhere, we are bound to somewhere. Only our present physical body came from "dust" and to "dust" shall turn back to.

Inevitable sadness lays on saying goodbye and missing a loved one, but we shall not allow room for desperation to settle in. Hundreds of kids won't have Shane's luck and success and will die way before puberty in terrible other ways. It's just the way things are on this dimension.

We shall not hope to be merely alive on this planet, but to make the best passage we can.

Don't worry. Shane still shines and so will we.

Shortly after Shane passed, another young fighter had a fatal heart attack.

The mixed martial arts (MMA) world was rocked by the death of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Shane Del Rosario, who passed away earlier this month following complications from cardiac arrest suffered in his home in late November.

Del Rosario was rushed to the hospital after being discovered by roommate and fellow UFC fighter, Ian McCall. He was resuscitated at the hospital and put on life support. After grasping to life, he finally passed away after suffering brain damage due to lack of oxygen in the brain and congenital heart failure.

The immediate causes listed on his death certificate are anoxic encephalopathy, ventricular fibrillation and Long QT Syndrome. However, also listed as "other significant conditions contributing to death but not resulting in the underlying cause" were cocaine, opiates, and THC.

MMAJunkie spoke with Orange County Supervising Deputy Coroner Daniel Aikin, who confirmed that the drugs were found during a routine urine sample taken by the hospital. He also confirmed that the levels of drugs in his system are unknown as an autopsy was not performed.

Though he was formally announced as deceased on Dec. 9, the death certificate reveals that he was actually declared dead on Dec. 3. The reason for the delay was because his family refused to take him off of life support.

Poor guy. Sounds like the drugs probably didn't help but were not the underlying cause. Too bad, bro was just trying to have a good time.

Very sad. Sadder still is that no doctor has come forth yet and revealed that one of the classic and most dangerous side effects of growth hormone is thickening of the left ventricle of the heart, which delays the electrical signal through the muscle, aka long QT syndrome. Combine this with cocaine use and you are playing Russian roulette.
