World's Fastest Heart Attack Survivor?

Post by EugeneRunner on Wed Jun 24, 2015 1:21 pm

Best I can tell (I've searched more than I should have) this guy is the fastest MI survivor, at least in the middle distances.  David Heath of Great Britain had a heart attack in 2002, and ran 3:54 for 1500m in 2010 at age 45.  Now at age 50 he has run 1:59 for 800m and a world age group record of 4:02 for 1500m.  I'm not aware of anyone else who has run a world record after an MI, but it seems fairly likely someone else has done that in one of the much older age groups.

Kinda shreds the outdated mindset that a heart issue means the end of an active life doesn't it.cheers

So then, my 9:59 mile last Tuesday won't make the record books? Oh wait, I never had a heart attack. I'm safely in another category.
