12-Time Molokai winner Oscar Chalupsky received a scare yesterday. Chalupsky, reports that he experienced abnormal heart flutterings during a training paddle and immediately went for tests.
He reports that he was diagnosed with arterial fibrillation and was administered a procedure to shock his heart back into rhythm.
We checked in with Oscar this morning and he reports that he is back at 100% and is intending to return immediately to training and competing.
The 53-year old paddler has remained active on the competitive circuit this past year including several top placings and a run at winning his thirteenth Molokai title.
