RE: The Killing Fields

The data is from a source that is asking people to report "athlete" deaths so should we be that surprised that the numbers are rising compared to a period when no one was asking the same question?

I have some experience of working with medical data and I very much doubt whether many if any death certificates issued in the western world would list the deceased as an "athlete" so it's just not possible to extract accurate or comparable data and come to any conclusion that more young "athletes" are dying.
