The pathologist on call at the Allegheny Medical Coroner’s office the day Webster died was Dr. Bennet Omalu.4 Dr. Omalu, conducted several tests on Webster’s brain, in the hope of discovering what was causing his symptoms. What Dr. Omalu found would change medical and sports history. Dr. Omalu described Webster’s brain “as one of boxers, very old people with Alzheimer’s disease or someone who had suffered a severe head wound.”5 Dr. Omalu published his findings and named his discovery CTE.
A medical diagnosis of CTE can only be made after a posthumous examination of the brain. Over the next ten years, several former NFL and College football players were diagnosed with CTE, including, Terry Long, Andre Waters, Tom McHale, Owen Thomas, Dave Duerson, Ray Easterling, and Junior Seau, among others.6
Gavin Elite Road Cycling Shoes provide fit and performance at an unbeatable price. They feature a micro adjustable buckle that allows you to fine tune the fit for comfort and performance.
Cycling shoes like the Gavin Elite Road Cycling Shoes are meant to be stiff and offer good support. Cycling shoes are designed to work with clipless pedal systems. These systems temporarily connect the shoe to the pedal (much like a ski binding system) for increased efficiency of power-transfer. They use a cleat on the bottom of each shoe and a matched fitting on the pedal. These items can be purchased separately.
Gavin cycling shoes run slightly small to true to size, and are sized with EU sizing conventions. If you are not sure about your size, we would suggest visiting your local bike shop or shoe store to be measured. Also, sometimes EU sizes are shown on US shoes, just lift the tongue of the shoe or sneaker and look for the corresponding EU size.
- Micro adjustable buckle for fine tuned fit and comfort
- Nylon fiberglass sole with air-flow vents
- Synthetic microfiber leather with breathable mesh
- Designed for comfort
- Compatible with: Look, SPD, SPD-R & SPD-SL cleats
After the discovery of CTE and the multitude of deaths associated with the disease, former NFL players filed a lawsuit against the NFL. Additionally, the U.S. Congress launched a former investigation in the NFL and its handling of players suffering from concussions.7
These events not only impacted the NFL but had ramifications throughout the sporting world.
CTE and the National Hockey League
The summer of 2011 was one of the most tragic periods in the history of the NHL. That summer saw the deaths of Derek Boogaard, Rick Rypien and Leafe Wade Belak in a span of four months. Boogaard, Rypien, and Belak, all played the role of enforcer during their NHL careers. An enforcer, in hockey terms, is a designated player given the responsibility and task of defending the other players on his team from cheap shots and other dirty plays. Enforcers tend to accomplish this task by playing a very physical game and specialize in the art of fighting. The three players also shared many of the common symptoms of CTE.8
It is reported that it is common for those who suffer from CTE to become depressed and resort to the use of drugs and alcohol to cope with the disease.9 Boogaard, Rypien, and Belak all suffered these symptoms towards the end of their lives.10
