"Autopsy results were not available Monday, but
Murry' s father said a doctor who worked on his son at the hospital said
he suffered a heart attack.
At least seven of Murry' s relatives attended the triathlon, and
his sister-in-law also competed in the race, Murry' s father said.
Murry said his son had put on weight while playing football in
high school and college and had trouble losing it before shedding 100
pounds in recent months. Pewaukee police said the family had told them
Daniel Murry weighed about 400 pounds before starting to lose weight in
preparation for the race."
Recent studies have shown that the most dangerous leg of a triathlon is the swim portion with over 75 percent of recent most triathlon deaths over the last few years in America occurring in the water.
