By being careless with your health.
Overeating and getting obese, not getting check ups, if diagnosed with diabetes, high bp, high cholesterol, smoking and excessive drinking, not following medical advice and inactivity, not much exercise and history of heart disease, diabetes, hypertension in the family all these factors can contribute to an athlete to go into heart failure.
