    Before the locking, I went looking for any new information on the death of Joe Kennedy. All I found so far was this Yahoo report. They are saying results from the tests to determine the cause of death are 6-to-8 weeks away.

    An enlarged heart or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is one of the common findings in sudden death in athletes. There are a variety of causes including narrowing of the heart muscle just below the aortic valve. I wrote a brief description on medicinenet.com

    There are athletes who, literally, have big hearts. It allows more ability to run distances but is also a risk. Athletes sometimes have different hearts.
