    Every military person should know: to not lock your knees when standing at attention for a duration. Locking your knees while at attention will definitely cause you to collapse. You are supposed to stand with the slightest bend in your knees, undetectable to the observer. All 5 should be just fine.
    Ok, that's not what comes to my mind since a parade is very routine and I don't remember this sort of thing happening previously. The armed forces have high standards of fitness, procedure and pretty much everything.

    I noticed the men and women were of a very junior rank. Some of them might have been at their first parade and a bit nervous. I do not think there is something sinister going on here. Some of the men and women were from different countries.

    I noticed the parade deck with the horses had a little more rank and experience in the officers and men involved and there was no incidents there.

    Not a sports person, not even sure if the cause was cardiac.

    Contains a video people may find disturbing, the singer collapses at the end and is reported to have died. This is exceptional but there have been others recently too.

    Quote Scots shinty star dies suddenly aged just 31 as tributes pour in for 'shining light taken too soon'

    Newtonmore Camanachd Club led the tributes to Andy Mackintosh, who captained the Highland team when they lifted both the Camanachd Cup and the MacTavish Cup in 2018.

    BySarah VestyReporter
    13:09, 3 JUN 2022

    Dozens of heartfelt tributes have poured in for a talented Scots shinty star who died suddenly aged just 31.

    Andy ‘Tosh’ Mackintosh, from Newtonmore, sadly passed away on June 1 leaving behind his devastated family, friends and teammates.

    The former Scotland international has been hailed as a “true soldier” of the sport, with clubs across the country sending their condolences.

    Newtonmore Camanachd Club led the tributes to Andy, who followed in his father Iain’s footsteps by playing for his hometown team.

    The club took to social media to share touching photographs of the defender, who captained the team to a Camanachd Cup and MacTavish Cup double in 2018, and his young family over the years.

    Alongside the pictures, the said: “There literally aren’t any words to convey our feelings at the Club today. For now we will let these precious pictures do the talking.

    “Our love, prayers and every waking thought are with Megan, Marnie, Hadley, Iain, Christine, Alison, the Mackintosh family and all of Andy’s many, many friends, we send our deepest condolences to them all.

    “A shining light has been taken from us, from the shinty world and from our community.”

    Andy’s fiancée shared a moving family photograph on social media and said: “Thank you all for messaging. I can’t even put into words. He will be loved and missed by so many.”

    Shinty commentator Hugh Dan MacLennan wrote: “I cannot recall the shinty community ever being tested like this in my lifetime. It is an apparently endless list of good people taken far too soon.

    “There are no words which can be of comfort but the images may say more than anyone can right now. My deepest sympathies to everyone concerned.”

    Drew MacDonald added: “A teammate, a best mate and a soul mate. I’ll forever love you Tosh.”

    Josh Grant posted: “Terrible, terrible news. Thoughts are with his family and with Newtonmore, shinty has lost a true soldier of the sport.”

    The YT channel Sanity 4 Sweden has posted about the marathon runner Charlotta Fougberg who competed at international level for Sweden and who can no longer compete or even train; she blames the jab for this as she felt ill after having it.

    'Drinking tea' is his code for having the jab, in order to get round YT censorship. It's about 6 minutes long.

    From The Epoch Times: Sudden Adult Death Syndrome

    "Hundreds of Athletes Have Collapsed and Died Post-Jab
    Among athletes, sudden death incidence has historically ranged between 1 in 40,000 and 1 in 80,000.12 An analysis13 of deaths among competitive athletes between 1980 and 2006 in the U.S. identified a total of 1,866 cases where an athlete either collapsed from cardiac arrest and/or died suddenly. That’s 1,866 cases occurring over a span of 27 years, giving us an annual average of 69 in the U.S.

    Data14 compiled by the International Olympic Committee show 1,101 sudden deaths in athletes under age 35 between 1966 and 2004, giving us an average annual rate of 29 sudden deaths, across all sports. Meanwhile, between March 2021 and March 2022 alone — a single year — at least 769 athletes have suffered cardiac arrest, collapse, and/or have died on the field, worldwide.15

    Good Sciencing, which is keeping a running total of athletic deaths post-jab puts the current number of cardiac arrests at 1,090 and total deaths at 715.16 Several dozen more are pending confirmation that the athlete had in fact received the shot.

    Among EU FIFA (football/soccer ball) athletes, sudden death increased by 420% in 2021.17 Historically, about five soccer players have died while playing the game each year. Between January and mid-November 2021, 21 FIFA players died from sudden death."

    To be fair, Swanigan quit basketball a few years ago due to psychological problems. He gained a lot of weight to extreme levels and was probably into drugs heavily. It's quite possible that he wasn't killed by the vaccine directly.

    14 year old football player dies on the field! One more incident in Greece. I wonder if this happens so often to other countries as well or is it just me that I bump into these news because I love both sports and conspiracies.

    Paul Duncan, who went to training camp with Broncos in 2010, dies at age 35



    Former offensive lineman Paul Duncan, who went to training camp with the Denver Broncos in 2010, died on July 15 at age 35, his wife, Ellen Duncan, confirmed in an Instagram post.

    “Paul went into cardiac arrest while on a run in our neighborhood,” Ellen wrote on July 16. “Today he was pronounced brain dead. We will have a medical examination to understand cause of death.

    “His body will be donated to people in need of organs and to medical research. Details on funeral arrangements to follow. Thank you for your prayers and support.”

    Duncan played college football at Notre Dame from 2005-2009, playing in 12 games as a senior before entering the NFL draft. He went undrafted in 2010 and signed with the Broncos as a college free agent.

    Duncan failed to make Denver’s 53-man roster and he didn’t play in any regular season games in the NFL, but he did have a brief stint with the Broncos before retiring from football.

    In addition to the focus on this tragic loss of life, I wonder about the suitability for donation of any tissue/organ of someone who has been vaccinated. Unsure if this individual had been, of course.

    14 year old football player dies on the field! One more incident in Greece. I wonder if this happens so often to other countries as well or is it just me that I bump into these news because I love both sports and conspiracies.
    It is happening here as well in youth sports. A friend was at his daughters' soccer/football game when one of the kids died on the pitch.

    It is mostly the hi-profile sports figures' deaths that will make it into the media.

    Quote Triathlete, 27, becomes 5th GTA doctor to die in July.

    The 27-year-old, who was a resident doctor at McMaster Children Hospital in Hamilton, collapsed while swimming as she competed in a triathlon on Sunday. She subsequently died on Thursday.
    Even more interestingly, she is the fifth doctor from that hospital who dies in July.

    Coach: Whitewater basketball player's sudden death cardiac-related

    Tony Galli Jul 27, 2022 Updated Jul 27, 2022



    WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- The coach of standout UW-Whitewater basketball player Derek Gray told 27 News the player's sudden death took place at a basketball camp on campus and was cardiac-related.

    "It was a cardiac event," UW-Whitewater Men's Basketball Coach Pat Miller told 27 News. "He had a blockage."


    Miller said more than 100 children ages 10 through 17 were attending the camp Sunday and being treated to pizza courtside as Gray, other players, counselors and coaches played on the court.

    "He was not labored, there was nothing we saw," Miller said of the 20-year-old Gray.

    Miller told 27 News when Gray collapsed, he thought the player experienced a seizure. Miller said emergency responders arrived quickly and campers were escorted out of the facility without becoming aware of the player's worsening condition.

    "It was just a very surreal situation where you're thinking, 'Okay, he's going to be all right,' and then you're very scared and the longer it went on, it became apparent that this was extraordinarily serious," Miller told 27 News.

    "I've been around for a long time, I've seen a lot of different things," Miller said. "It was one of the most traumatic things I've ever been a part of."

    Miller told 27 News Gray's basketball career was ascending after a breakout freshman year. He said Division 1 schools had interested in Gray.

    Miller also said Gray was a leader and an intelligent, inquisitive student-athlete. "He was a guy that everyone liked, looked up to. He's a guy I truly loved."

    Gray had a summer job at Whitewater Manufacturing as an assembler. Company President Crystal Singer said he was skilled and brought positivity to the workforce.

    "He was always happy," Singer said. "He was always in a good mood."

    Singer said Gray's sudden death was a shock at the plant. "Everybody here was just devastated."

    Before attending UW-Whitewater, Gray attended Madison's La Follette High School and helped the basketball team to banner seasons, along with his twin brother and older brother.

    "On behalf of Principal Mat [Thompson] and all [La Follette] High School Staff, it is with a profound sense of sadness that the La Follette community mourns the unexpected loss of former Lancer, Derek Gray," Assistant Principal Cullen Haskins wrote in a statement. "Derek was a giant of La Follette basketball and Lancer athletics, and was at his best in the toughest games and most challenging moments. He was a true "gamer". His toughness and tenacity on the court will always be remembered, and his kindness and smile off the court forever missed. As a well known student-athlete and basketball standout, his presence and impact on the La Follette community was far-reaching. His life, both on and off the court, had an enormous impact on all those who knew him. As we process this tremendous loss for our community, we ask you to join us in keeping Derek’s friends, teammates, and family in our thoughts."

    "I think it's important for his Mom and his family to know how valued he was and appreciated he was," Miller said.

    A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the family with funeral expenses.
