Olympic judo wrestler Maricet Espinosa Gonzalez, 34, passed away after suffering a heart attack following complications from breast enhancement surgery.

Known for her wrestling skills, she competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics and had a successful career.

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death among young athletes, and immediate medical attention can significantly improve survival rates.

“On behalf of our teachers, workers, and students we extend our deepest condolences to their families, friends, and colleagues,” the university stated.

Screening young athletes for hereditary markers and symptoms can help identify warning signs and prepare them for competition.

“The importance of CPR — the likelihood of surviving arrest is about 6%. Very very low,” Dr. Joel Temple said. “Effective CPR provided — immediately that goes up to 44%. If an AED is used, it goes up to 66%.”

“They are really simple questions that focus primarily on symptoms the patient may have had that could be warning signs, like fainting palpitations or chest pain. Also, focus on family history — that could be somewhat helpful,” Dr. Temple said.
