    Why 42 liao still want to challenge his own fitness ? Or worst still, challenge those young punks ?

    At 42, you don't see the real fit sportsmen chasing for glory.

    We often read about young teens and adults dropping dead from running. Maybe they should switch to more gym and aerobic exercises. Hardly hear of people getting cardiac arrests while doing dead lifts or pilates.

    This is not the first case and It will not be the last.

    In a triathlon , everyone is going for the front line. Worst is in the swim section where everyone will be kicking at each other to get in front . Nobody cares about you when you are kicked in the chest , groin or face .

    The trouble is when you are kicked in the face and knocked unconscious . That is when you can get drown .

    One never hears about PAP MPs, scholars, elites, ... dying in such events. Why would anyone risk their lifes:confused:
