argon 18 triathlete Torbjørn Sindballe ends triathlon career with heart concerns

Argon 18 announced their triathlon star Torbjørn Sindballe, who has been an ambassador and an important collaborator with them for the past 5 years, must put an end to his sport career immediately due to a major health issue.

During wildflower triathlon in early May the Danish powerhouse ended his race hyperventilating in T2 after a very uncharacteristic bike ride during which he faded down the field with a drastically dropping HR and heavy fatigue. The Dane has known about an abnormal heart valve since 2005 and has had regular checkups to ensure he was safe to race. After the incident in California he has gone through extensive testing and evaluation with Danish experts. After considering their advice Torbjørn has decided to stop his career immediately.
