Well, this was right at the finish line of the Triathlon.

Not saying that the adverse reactions aren't real (they are), but these poeple just swam 1.5 mile, rode 25 miles, and ran 10 miles. Pretty sure that most people, even really healthy people, would be "passing out" if they did that.

I have done several Olympic distance triathlons. The first thing I did at the finish was lay down in the shade for a few minutes. Then I got up and did a proper cool down, started rehydrating, etc.

Hey… pump the brakes, Pede.

I know that the vax is going to cause issues. Sadly, there will be young people permanently affected.

My point is that it would be better the focus on sports where the participants aren’t literally going all out for 90 straight minutes with no breaks. The picture posted isn’t the best way to illustrate the danger.

I got your point.

Yeah I agree with this. Would not be surprised if we see an impact on athletes as well as everyone else in the near and long term but 85 degrees is hot for a triathlon

Welcome to Washington DC. If you lived here you'd probably be dead now.

Studies are now showing the clotting is from the spikes damaging veins/arteries. They're finding likely millions of microscopic clots all over, including the lungs (which why breathing and O2 issues with so many people)

Yes. I know that.

I was pointing out that this picture isn’t the case to make.

You dig?

Came here to say this. I watched the end of the event (my wife is a massive olympics fan and had the triathlon on) and I was completely unsurprised that most of them had to lay down after the event…they were nearly sprinting there at the end of a triathlon. Maybe it’s true, this is just a terrible example to use as evidence.

that's good to hear, hope there are no issues

Light_HIV_Effect 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yep, I watched the end of that. You can see the rightmost guy in the white headband was the American.

chuckachookah 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yeah, dude did a good race (beat any US participant has ever done).

Again, this picture and the 4Chan cited post is misleading.

There ARE issues with the vaccine.

There ARE concerns for healthy people.

There ARE reasons why young people should be saying “no thanks”.

This isn’t the picture you should use to support those correct arguments.

Lol that excuse that Japan lied about the weather is so lame when anybody can look up the weather nowadays

hey, if flat earthers can believe "all the map makers are in on it" that why can't the covidiots believe that ALL of Japan lied about the weather? lol

Jesus Christ, my wife would set the Thermostat to 85 if I let her!

This can't be true.

Fuck_The_NWO 10 points ago +10 / -0

Well now you have evidence that 85F can kill so tell her to stop touching the thermostat if she loves you!

News Flash: Japan lied about their weather. The Weather Channel was unavailable for comment.

Athletes, at least endurance styles ones like this anyways, are actually the most vulnerable to heart disease. Most people's bodies are not designed to take prolonged high intensity abuse like that, and their qualifications into these events is hardly if ever based on their heart rate recovery. They've probably spent the last few months always on the edge of cardiac arrest.

Uh-oh-- "weather"--prepare to be beat over the head with "climate change is killing Olympians!"

They had to swim through radioactive shit water so the reaction is understandable.
