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.

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.
