How Justin Park's Journey Changed the Game
Justin was diagnosed with Long QT Syndrome, a life-threatening heart condition, after blacking out and nearly dying on the race course at a Regional Championship. Only a freshman at Duke University, his lifelong dream of playing collegiate soccer was over.
Justin went on to excel as a corporate attorney, but all the while still dreamed of pursuing elite sports. After numerous medical consultations, Justin chose to compete despite the inherent risks of his condition. It required proper monitoring with several medical specialists, as well as specific attention to health and nutrition, but soon he was competing and winning triathlons at some of the largest events in the world.
