Boston’s COVID vaccine mandate for indoor venues, set to go into effect on Jan. 15 2022, will not include professional athletes.
The wording of the vaccine mandate allows for “a professional athlete/sports team who enters a covered premises as part of their regular employment for purposes of competing” to not be vaccinated. It will apply to both resident and visiting athletes.
According to the Boston Globe, right now, people 12 years old and older need to show either a recent negative COVID test or an up-to-date vaccine card in order to gain access to the TD Garden.
After the Jan. 15 2022 deadline, the option for the negative test will no longer exist, and all people wishing to enter the premises will have to show proof of vaccination.
The new vaccine mandate was revealed on Monday by Michelle Wu, Boston’s mayor, and, similar to other vaccine mandates worldwide, also applies to many other types of indoor businesses.
It is definitely not normal for young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. All of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine. While it is possible this can happen to people who did not get a COVID vaccine, the sheer numbers clearly point to the only obvious cause.
The so-called health professionals running the COVID vaccine programs around the world keep repeating that “the COVID vaccine is a normal vaccine and it is safe and effective.”
So in response to their pronouncement, here is a non-exhaustive and continuously growing list of mainly young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021 after receiving one or more COVID vaccines. Initially, many of these were not reported. We know that many people were told not to tell anyone about their adverse reactions and the media was not reporting them. They started happening after the first COVID vaccinations. The mainstream media still are not reporting most, but sports news cannot ignore the fact that soccer players and other stars collapse in the middle of a game due to a heart attack. Many of those die – more than 50%.
We really appreciate the athletes named in this list who have confirmed what happened to them so the truth can be known.
After three years of competing as a male, a transgender swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania switched to competing as a female and is now dominating the competition, the Daily Wire reported this week.
What are the details?
Senior swimmer Lia Thomas, formerly known as Will Thomas, reportedly broke multiple school and conference records during a Nov. 20 swim meet against Cornell University and Princeton University.
According to SwimSwam, Thomas “blasted the number one 200 free time and the second-fastest 500 free time in the nation on Saturday, breaking Penn program records in both events.” The swimming blog later noted that Thomas’s times in both races marked new Ivy League records, as well.
Thomas also reportedly “swept the 100-200-500 free individual events and contributed to” Penn’s first-place finish in the 400-meter freestyle relay. Thomas’s time in the 200-meter free was “only half a second off the NCAA A cut” and was “the second-fastest women’s 200 free time in the nation so far this season,” the blog added.
Earlier in the month, Thomas reportedly “took home a pair of gold medals in the 200 free and 100 free with margins of 5.4 seconds and 1.3 seconds” in a meet against Columbia University.
Since 2015, the International Olympic Committee has required men who identify as women to lower their testosterone levels to compete in women’s events. On Tuesday, it announced a rollback of those requirements.
The IOC now claims there is “no scientific consensus on how testosterone affects performance across all sports,” according to Yahoo Sports.
In the last two decades, the committee has amended its rules for transgender athletes multiple times. In 2003, it issued a mandate stating men who identify as women had to undergo gender transition surgery to compete in women’s events.
The IOC rescinded the surgery requirement in 2015 but still recommended lowered testosterone levels for transgender athletes seeking to compete against women.
While this was not a requirement, Yahoo said, “most sport-specific federations” followed it.
Now, the committee has changed its stance and says it is “not in a position to issue regulations that define eligibility criteria for every sport, discipline or event across the very different national jurisdictions and sport systems.”
Facebook owned Instagram has censored Evolutionary biologist Colin Wright after he posted a chart that proves men are biologically stronger than women in a range of sports, even if they have undergone gender transitioning treatment.
Instagram removed Wright’s post which contained a chart from a scientific study titled Transgender Women in the Female Category of Sport: Perspectives on Testosterone Suppression and Performance Advantage.
The peer-reviewed study was published in the journal Medicine & Sports, which has been in wide circulation since 1969.
The study by researchers at the University of Manchester in the UK and Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm found that biological males categorically have performance advantages over biological females across sports that are contested in the Olympics.
In another example of how privileged people aren’t having to follow the same rules as everyone else, the NBA won’t force elite athletes to take the COVID-19 vaccine despite staff being mandated to get it.
Wealthy NBA stars have made themselves the latest exempted class after their union (the NBPA) “refused to budge on its demand that players not be required to take the vaccine.”
Around 100 million Americans will be forced to get jabbed if they want to keep their jobs after Biden’s executive order, but the 15 per cent of NBA players who remain unvaccinated will be left alone.
“Any proposal that mandates vaccination remains a “non-starter,” reports ESPN.
However, both referees and NBS staffers will be required to get vaccinated if they want to stay in a job.
The union is refusing to give ground despite the NBA previously announcing that by October 1 anyone who came within 15 feet of players would be required to vaccinated.
