Track Runner Collapses After Being Forced to Run with Mask (VIDEO)
I swear some people just do not know how to think anymore, and I’m dead serious about that.
In the society that we live in now, people have lost all ability to think rationally and instead think only emotionally.
When they make decisions, they make the wrong decision because they just don’t know how to use proper logic or they’re trying to appease someone else at the detriment of another.
This was the case in Oregon. Oregon is one of the only states in the country which mandates masks for high school track and cross country runners. Folks, this is running outside.
Well, as a result of this insane mandate, one runner ended up collapsing at the finish line after saying that she struggled to get proper breaths and enough oxygen while she was running.
Maggie Williams, a junior on the Summit High School track team, broke a school record in the 800-meter last Thursday. Her moment of glory has been somewhat overshadowed a by moment of concern – Williams passed out as she stumbled her way across the finish line. She and her coach say the mask is to blame, and now the Oregon Health Authority is updating its guidelines.
Williams ran the 800-meter race in 2:08:45, which beat the previous school record of 2:10:54 set in 2019.
“I found out a couple minutes after my race, when I had recovered from my fall,” Williams told NewsChannel 21 Monday. “So super exciting for me.”
The fall Williams is referring to happened during the last seven meters of the race, just as she was about to finish.
“I felt like I just wasn’t being able to get a full breath,” she said. “Multiple times of that happening, not being able to get enough air — I just felt super-dizzy, and then eventually passed out.”
The girl said that her lack of oxygen is a result of the mask she had been forced to wear during competitions.
As a result of this incident, Oregon has changed their requirements and only have to wear a mask for races that they will be closer to one another.
