In brief: Yes!

At least until you talk to your cardiologist and get their evaluation and opinion.
Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy is associated with sudden cardiac death during maximal exercise, like during competitive sports. If you have been given this diagnosis you should be seeing a cardiologist that specializes in this condition.
