Why do sportspeople increasingly collapse to the ground in soccer fields?

Yet another professional footballer suddenly collapsed in the middle of a game last night during Real Madrid's Champions League game with Sherrif Tiraspol in Moldova.

26-year-old Sherrif Tiraspol winger Adama Traore was seen clutching his chest as he fell to the ground in the 77th minute.

The Malian striker remained on the ground as doctors rushed to help, initially trying to revive him with the smell of salts with little success.

"He was seen shaking his head in response to questions from doctors and was eventually lifted to a sitting position before being helped out of the field and back into the locker room," reports the Daily Mail.

"The Moldovan side has yet to detail the reasons why Traore suffered from chest pains." Usually these pains are the signal of extreme cardiac events.

Traore's collapse occurred the night after another player, Sheffield United's John Fleck , similarly fell during a game against Reading.

Fleck had to be carried away on a stretcher after receiving lengthy treatment and an oxygen mask before being taken to the hospital.
A leading German newspaper, the Berliner Zeitung, recently published a report seeking to answer why "an unusually large number of professional and amateur footballers have recently collapsed". Here is the list

Other professional athletes have also suffered from similar health problems recently, including 24-year-old Slovak hockey player Boris Sádecký, who tragically died after collapsing on the ice during a game last month.

According to a report by Dr. Yaffa Shir-Raz, there was a "5-fold increase in sudden heart deaths of FIFA players in 2021".

"So what's causing this sudden epidemic?" Shir-Raz asks

What could cause all these sudden crashes of otherwise elite, fit and healthy pro athletes?

Let's make some assumptions:

  • sports doctors have become too superficial even in the analyzes for professionals, which is not impossible;
  • there is some form of doping, even involuntary, which however is harming athletes. Curious that it also affects coaches and referees;
  • there has been some other medical treatment that is having negative effects on those who exploit their body to a high level in sports activities.

What will be the right hypothesis?
