    25 year old elite swimmer passes out while competing today.

    26 year old elite NFL athlete dies without known cause on the same day.

    This keeps happening the past two years.

    Weird. Has anything changed in our lives over the past few years? Diet, lifestyle, medication, what could be causing all of these world class athletes in peak health to die and pass out?

    I can’t find any videos of this anywhere. It’s only pictures. Apparently the coach had to dive in because she noticed her swimmer was in trouble and the lifeguard on duty wasn’t paying attention. Luckily another guy from the other side of the pool also dove in and helped her once she got her to the surface. Crazy stuff.

    This is a dumb question but the swimmer who fainted most also be drowning, right? Or does her buddy know to hold her breath or only breathe out?

    I thought it’s just a picture of someone tried to stick her finger in her friends butt. Then I read the title..

    This is the second time it has happened to her but her coach saved her again.
    And Andrea Fuentes is the most successful Spanish swimmer.
