Myocarditis, causes a swelling of the heart muscle and has been linked to 20 per cent of sudden deaths in young athletes
[Ed. Note: Tragic, yet strange how the athletes didn’t start collapsing on the field until after the vaccines came along… There must have been a delay in how long it took covid to cause the myocarditis that the vaccine is certainly NOT causing.]

Young athletes are at risk of developing a potentially fatal heart condition after recovering from Covid, according to new research.
A small but significant number of budding sports professionals who had the virus have now developed the illness without showing any symptoms, say scientists.
The condition, known as myocarditis, causes a swelling of the heart muscle and has been linked to 20 per cent of sudden deaths in young athletes.
It affects the heart’s rhythm and ability to pump blood, often causing lasting damage in the form of scarring.
Now researchers in the United States have found college athletes could be at risk of developing the rare condition, which can only be spotted with an MRI.
