There are already more than 75 athletes “suddenly” deceased in the last 5 months. Since mid-2021 there has been a strikingly high number of “sudden and unexpected” deaths in sport. In full activity, even 13-year-olds are falling.
There are no reliable statistics to compare whether these numbers are normal or increased dramatically. On Wikipedia there are lists of athletes who died during the game. The list dates back to 1889 and is long at first glance, but in the end it shows that even in the “disaster years” between 5 and 8 such deaths were recorded. Many of them have to do with heart problems.

The question is therefore difficult to answer without official and comprehensive statistics: Do more people really die “suddenly and unexpectedly” in sport, especially when it affects professionals and high-level athletes? And is it due to vaccination, as many critical minds suspect?

This is the list of horrors, starting in June 2021 – when vaccination campaigns were in full swing and everyone who blindly trusted the system had already received their second vaccine.
