    Scott Donaldson (age 28), professional snooker player, back after 'Tremor' career scare.

    Quote I went to see a private neurologist and he confirmed to me that it was the Covid vaccine that gave me an essential tremor that I was diagnosed with, that I’ve never had in my life.

    Not a cardiac issue though.

    Quote Matt Le Tissier On The Epidemic Death Of Athletes: "This Needs To Be Investigated!"
    Sunfellow on COVID-19 Published April 20, 2022

    U.K. football legend and sports commentator Matt Le Tissier, featured in the video above, is among those who have been speaking out about the large number of athletes who have collapsed or died on the field -- and he lost his job as a commentator because of it.

    In an interview with Red Voice Media, Le Tissier is asked about his thoughts on the surge of cardiac events in the sporting world, to which he responded:

    "I've never seen anything like it. I played for 17 years. I don't think I saw one person in 17 years have to come off the football pitch with breathing difficulties, clutching their heart, heart problems..."

    "The last year, it's just been unbelievable how many people, not just footballers but sports people in general, tennis players, cricketers, basketball players, just how many are just keeling over. And at some point, surely you have to say this isn't right, this needs to be investigated."

    The numbers are outrageous.

    UPDATE: A Jaw-Dropping 769 Athletes have Collapsed While Competing Over The Past Year – “Avg. Age of Players Suffering Cardiac Arrest is JUST 23” – (VIDEO)


    Over the past year-plus, athletes across the world have been dropping like flies as they compete in games. If they aren’t passed out cold, they are seen gripping their chests in agony, unable to breathe due to sudden cardiac events that hit in the heat of the competition.

    This wave of heart issues is unprecedented, to say the least. Never before have we seen young, healthy, world-class athletes experiencing heart issues en masse like this. It has never happened, ever. Furthermore, the timing of this sweeping phenomenon could not be more relevant, coinciding perfectly with the rollout of the experimental Covid-19 vaccines.

    In December nearly 300 athletes reportedly collapsed or suffered cardiac arrests after taking the COVID vaccines.

    But it gets worse. Thanks to a new explosive report by OAN that pegs the number of affected athletes in the hundreds.

    In all, their investigation found a jaw-dropping 769 men and women who collapsed with heart issues during competition over the past year (between March 2021 and March 2022).

    Most shockingly, the average age of those who experienced full-blown cardiac arrest was just 23.

    Considering the timing of this never-before-seen issue in healthy athletes, and the universal push for Covid jabs, all signs point to one culprit: the experimental vaccine.

    After detailing two recent high-profile cases, in which two of fifteen tennis players were forced to recuse themselves from last month’s Miami Open, OAN’s Pearson Sharp reviewed their shocking investigation and asked a few pressing questions that should be answered if you are still questioning what is driving these heart issues in young individuals:

    Quote “These are just two of more than 769 athletes who have collapsed during a game on the field over the last year. From March of 2021 to March of this year. The average age of the players suffering cardiac arrest is just 23-years-old.
    How many 23-year-old athletes were collapsing and suffering heart attacks before this year? Do you know any 23-year-old people who had heart attacks before now?

    And these are just the ones we know about. How many have gone unreported? Nearly 800 athletes – young, fit people in the prime of life falling down on the field. In fact, 500% more soccer players in the EU are dropping dead from heart attacks than just one year ago.”

    Just in case there is any lingering inclination to call this a coincidence, Sharp sets the record straight.

    “Coincidence? When the Pfizer vaccine is known to cause heart inflamation? No. In fact, many doctors treating these players list their injuries and deaths as being directly caused by the vaccine…

    This is not a coincidence – healthy teenagers dying after getting the Pfizer injection. Doctors warned the FDA before they released the experimental vaccine that it would ‘almost certainly cause terrible organ damage.'”

    The only question left is: when do we see some accountability?

    This investigative report by OAN should serve, at the very least, as a catalyst to begin looking into the severe damage the vaccines have been causing, particularly in young people. It has been obvious for a while that the jab does not even protect against the spread of Covid, yet, the fraudulent Biden Regime and Dr. Fauci recently approved a fourth dose, with a fifth likely coming very soon.

    Continuing to push these vaccines with the information that is out there now (and has been for months) is beyond criminal.

    Yet, here we are.

    Reported by The Guardian:
    Former Australia cricketer Ryan Campbell out of coma after heart attack

    Former Australia cricketer Ryan Campbell has awoken from an induced coma in a London hospital, after suffering a heart attack. The 50-year-old Western Australian sporting hero was at a playground with his children at the weekend when he collapsed.

    Campbell’s brother Mark has given a positive update after there were major fears for his life.

    “They’ve taken the heavy sedation off, so he’s actually woken up,” Mark Campbell told Triple M on Wednesday. “Now they’re just look at trying to work out what’s wrong with his heart.

    “He did a few tests and they’re saying there doesn’t appear at this stage to be any brain damage, his brain wasn’t starved of oxygen. They’re not sure now why his heart is still being arrhythmic.

    Another for the list of medical emergencies in the crowd:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/60534231

    Quote Bolton kept their play-off hopes alive as they beat struggling Gillingham 3-0 at Priestfield to claim a ninth league victory in 12 games...

    ...The start of the second half was delayed by four minutes following a medical emergency involving a member of the stadium's security team.
    I watch quite a bit of sport. Continuing to see these stoppages, the latest this morning at the Crucible in Sheffield where the match between Wilson and Bingham on BBC is currently stopped whilst someone receives treatment.

    I don't have any data to compare this too and of course it's possible that current events have made me far more sensitive to each occurrence but I can honestly state that the frequency of these events has massively increased, at least in my own perception.

    And in others too:

    https://www.pne-online.net/forum/ind...vents.3435514/

    As I've written elsewhere, the events of the last couple of years have a scripted quality to me. Which means that the appearance of this study:

    https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-...ng-events.html

    in 2018 is of interest. All those years and no-one has looked at it and then, just before the pandemic, there's data, and recent data at that, which someone could use to plot an increase.

    Haven't you heard? It's the referees' whistles. No kidding, that is what some so-called official sources claim is causing the heart attacks.

    After how many decades of playing soccer (football), US Football, basketball, etc... why, suddenly, does blowing whistles during sporting events cause heart attacks? It doesn't. But that is how stupid and gullible they think the average person is and how they have no respect for anyone's intelligence, or anything else.

    Quote Former Swansea City footballer Mark Davies dies aged 49 after collapsing during match

    He was declared dead at the scene after emergency services arrived


    ByKatie SandsDigital Development Editor, Sport
    16:41, 16 MAY 2022UPDATED20:54, 16 MAY 2022

    An "absolute gentleman" and "real football man" has died aged 49 after collapsing while playing the sport he loved.

    Mark Davies had turned out for Llanelli Town AFC's Veterans side in the over-45s Cup Final against Penybont FC in Cardiff on Sunday, May 15, but collapsed during the game. Emergency services were called and he received medical attention but was declared dead at the scene.

    Tributes have poured in for the popular player and former Swansea City defender, who had the pleasure of marking George Weah - who was crowned the world's best player by FIFA in 1995 - when the Swans faced AS Monaco in the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1991. A fund has also been set up for his family - which you can donate to here.

    "It devastates us to announce the untimely death of our Veterans, reserve team player and friend Mr Mark Davies," Llanelli Town AFC said in a statement issued on Monday. "Our heartfelt condolences and thoughts go to Marks' family at this sad time.

    "Sadly, Mark passed away playing the game that he loved and graced for many years in this area. Mark also played for many years for Dafen AFC and our thoughts also go to his friends there. Mark will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. Mark was a truly lovely guy, a gentleman on and off the field. RIP Mark".

    Llanelli Town AFC Veterans said: "Heartbroken to announce we have lost an absolute gentleman on and off the pitch. A real football man who looked after all around him with passion and love for the game unrivalled. Thoughts are with Mark Davies’ family at this tragic time".

    "Swansea City is saddened to learn of the passing of Mark Davies," a club spokesperson said. "Our thoughts and condolences are with Mark's family and friends at this sad time."

    A spokesperson for South Wales Police said: "Shortly after 3.40pm on Sunday, May 15, emergency services responded to a call following a report that a man had collapsed near Lawrenny Avenue in Canton. The 49-year-old man was playing football. Police Community Support Officers and paramedics were at scene and commenced CPR. However, despite their efforts, the man was declared deceased. HM Coroner has been informed."

    A spokesperson for the Welsh Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 3.27pm yesterday, Sunday 15 May to reports of a medical emergency on Leckwith Road in the Canton area of Cardiff. We attended scene with an emergency care doctor and two emergency ambulance crews. No further details are available."

    Davies was a member of Swansea's West Wales Senior Cup-winning squad before signing a professional contract in July 1991. Two months later he was making his debut against Monaco in the European Cup Winners' Cup, featuring in the 8-0 second-leg loss to Arsene Wenger's team. Davies made his sole league appearance for the Swans that same season and then joined Merthyr Tydfil in August 1992. According to Swansea's club website, he then had to "give up football because of a medical condition, briefly resuming with Llanelli".

    Mr Davies was also a key figure for nearby Dafen Welfare AFC, for whom he had two spells and also managed. Club secretary Paul Clement said on the club's website: "Our thoughts are with Mark's children, friends and family. He was a massive force within our club in his time here. A captain, a leader. Our captain, our leader. Most importantly a really nice guy and a friend. Mark had two spells at Dafen. His first was cut short through illness. He battled back from this and some injury set-backs to return to play with the club. Mark had a presence on the pitch and played a huge part in our West Wales Intermediate Cup win in 2012. As a manager he also had two spells and he led us to the TG Davies Cup in 2014. On stepping down he continued to play for the Reserves until a few seasons ago, when deciding to concentrate on Veterans football at Llanelli AFC. He was a Swan, then became a Dafen Bluebird. Mark it was a privilege, we'll miss you. x".

    Penybont FC, Llanelli's opponents on Sunday, said: "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Llanelli Town Veterans player, Mark Davies, who sadly passed away following the Wales Vets Cup Final. Rest in peace Mark."

    Llanelli's reserves fixtures against Pontardawe Town on Wednesday has been postponed to May 24 as a mark of respect.

    Football Association of Wales chief executive Noel Mooney said: "We are devastated to hear this - Mark was a football person and a Cymru supporter. May he Rest In Peace - from all at the FAW".

    Quote 30-Year-Old Runner Dies at Brooklyn Half Marathon Finish Line, per FDNY
    According to the New York City Fire Department, 16 runners were transported to local hospitals, with five in serious condition
    May 21, 2022 05:40 PM

    More than a dozen casualties were reported at the Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday morning, including one runner who collapsed and died at the finish line, officials said.

    The New York City Fire Department confirmed to PEOPLE on Saturday that 16 participants were transported to local hospitals, five of which were considered in serious condition and one who was pronounced dead.

    No cause of death was identified for the runner, a 30-year-old man who was pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital, according to race organizers.

    Organized by New York Road Runners, a nonprofit dedicated to raising money for charity with its races, the Brooklyn Half Marathon is more than 13 miles from Prospect Park to Coney Island.

    "We are deeply saddened by the passing of a participant following the 2022 RBC Brooklyn Half. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the runner's family and those close to them," NYRR spokesperson Trina Singian told PEOPLE in a statement.

    "The health and safety of our runners, volunteers, partners, and staff remain the top priority for NYRR. In coordination and consultation with the city agency partners and weather experts, NYRR was closely monitoring weather conditions leading up to and during the race," the statement continued.

    NYRR said the runner who died was immediately attended to by on-site medical staff after collapsing shortly before 10 a.m. local time. The organization said it places medical staff throughout the half marathon route, and that runners who need further medical care are transported to the appropriate facilities.

    This year, temperatures reached as high as 90 degrees in the afternoon, creating unusually hot and dangerous conditions for this time of year. Moderate air quality alerts were also issued for parts of Brooklyn due to air pollution.

    However, the NYRR told PEOPLE that weather temperatures hovered around the low 60s to high 70s during the race.

    From this link: https://thekylebecker.substack.com/p...lapsed-and?s=r

    Quote It is an absolute fact that all the runners who participated in the Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday declared that they had been vaccinated for Covid-19. Whether or not that is relevant to the unprecedented number of runners who collapsed or even the man who died during the event is another story.

    ...

    All Brooklyn Half participants must declare that they have been vaccinated for Covid-19, the official websites makes clear.
    "All runners must be able to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to participate in NYRR races," the website states. "For more information, visit our COVID-19 vaccination policy page. Please stay up-to-date on the latest news and guidelines from the CDC, WHO, and your local and national authorities."

    "The health and safety of our runners and staff remain a priority for NYRR," the Brooklyn Half organizers add. "All NYRR staff will be practicing social distancing and wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). If you have any questions, please reach out to us at help@nyrr.org. Thank you for your continued patience and support."
    ...

    While it is impossible to know if the Brooklyn Half runners' health conditions are tied in any way to Covid vaccination, the unprecedented number of runners' collapses will draw more scrutiny to the necessity of vaccinating athletes with mRNA shots that do not stop the spread of the coronavirus in any significant way and only provide extremely marginal benefit for young people, particularly those with prior infections and subsequently, natural immunity.

    Here is the official website for the Brooklyn Half Marathon, on the page that has the vaccination requirement (it matches the quoted article): https://www.thebrooklynmarathon.com/expo-bib-pickup.

    Quote Lawrence North freshman R'Mon Rowley was 'loved by all that knew him'

    Matthew VanTryon, Indianapolis Star
    Wed, May 25, 2022, 2:54 PM

    The 15-year-old freshman who died during track and field practice at Lawrence North High School on Monday has been identified as R'Mon Rowley, according to the Marion County Coroner’s Office.

    A cause of death was not made available. Lawrence Township EMS responded to a call at practice for a student in cardiac arrest on Monday at 5:24 p.m.

    A GoFundMe page has been set up by his aunt, Tamica Russ, to help with funeral costs. Russ described Rowley as "very respectful and kind and loved by all that knew him."

    "He loved anime, with Naruto being one of his favorite shows," the GoFundMe page says. "He loved to draw and was very good at it. He was in the Big Brothers program and he always expressed how much he wanted to be a Zoologist. He was excited about the opportunity to play high school football."

    “The Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township and Lawrence North High School are extremely saddened by the sudden and unexpected death of a 15-year old freshman student this evening at Track & Field practice,” the township said in a statement on Monday. “Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, teachers, and classmates.”

    Vaccination was a requirement to participate in the half-marathon, but not the booster. Here's a link to the marathon official site which stipulates vaccination entry requirements

    Quote Professional bodybuilder Paul Poloczek dies aged 37 - hours after competing in tournament as grieving wife says 'you live on in our hearts'

    - The Polish strongman had competed in the NPC Worldwide Championship
    - Just hours later, he died unexpectedly, leaving behind a wife and daughter
    - It is the latest in a long line of high-profile bodybuilder deaths

    By JACK NEWMAN FOR MAILONLINE
    PUBLISHED: 08:32, 1 June 2022 | UPDATED: 16:54, 1 June 2022

    Polish bodybuilder Paul Poloczek has died aged 37 just hours after competing in a championship in Germany.

    The Polish-born strongman had taken part in the NPC Worldwide Championship and leaves behind a wife and a young daughter.

    A cause of death has not been established but Poloczek is just the latest high-profile bodybuilder to die in recent months.

    Poloczek was originally a keen football player but fell in love with bodybuilding as a teenager and joined the famous Powerhouse Gym franchise in Oehringen in Germany in 2002, before later becoming its owner.

    He won his first Junior Championship bodybuilding competition aged 17 and later finished second in the German Championships in the Super-Heavyweight division in 2012.

    He later won the Arnold Classic amateur tournament in 2017 which allowed him to go professional.

    Former German bodybuilder turned coach Dennis Wolf said in a tribute: 'I'm still at a loss for words and I was personally very upset when I found out that Paul Poloczek had left us.

    'Paul was kind-hearted and a great person, a family man and an outstanding athlete.

    'My deepest and sincere condolences go out to family and friends. I wish you a lot of strength for this incredibly difficult time

    'I will miss you very much and will never forget how you were, my friend. Rest in power Paul.'

    His death comes a month after fellow bodybuilder Stacey Cummings died unexpectedly aged 31.

    Born in Florida, the mother-of-two started bodybuilding in 2013, earning her certification as an International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness professional just three years later in 2016.

    She competed in the bikini division of the 2021 IFBB Texas Pro, and co-owned Flex Fitness 24/7 gym in McKinney, Texas, with her husband, fellow bodybuilding professional Bryant Fought.

    Quote College lacrosse player from Long Island dead at 19

    By Allie Griffin
    June 2, 2022 1:14am Updated

    A University of Massachusetts Amherst lacrosse player from Long Island died Monday morning at just 19 years old.

    Aidan Kaminska, who was raised in Port Jefferson, died “unexpectedly,” according to an obituary notice and the university.

    Neither the obituary nor the university’s announcement lists the student’s cause of death.

    Kaminska was a sophomore communications major and a midfielder for UMass Amherst’s lacrosse team, the Minutemen.

    The teen was known for “his infectious smile” and his ability as “a tremendous athlete,” according to his obituary.

    He was named Rookie of the Week and called “an unlikely hero” by the student newspaper after scoring three goals against Hofstra University in April. He went on to join the CAA All-Rookie team for the 2022 season and ended the season being named to the 2022 CAA All-Tournament team.

    Kaminska’s affinity for athletics began in his Long Island hometown when he started playing lacrosse as a youngster.

    A student of the Port Jefferson School District, he played both lacrosse and football in high school — and became a team captain in both sports. He won several honors including All-County Midfielder in lacrosse and All-County and All-State in football for his senior year.

    Kaminska loved baby animals, taking long walks in nature, cooking and trying out new recipes. He “loved to be goofy and make people laugh,” his family said in his obituary.

    “Aidan had numerous friends and was an inspiration to many,” his obituary states. “He will sorely be missed.”

    Quote Man dies after completing Brooklyn half-marathon

    Fire personnel at the race were alerted to a patient in cardiac arrest and rushed him to Coney Island Hospital.

    May 22, 2022, 6:36 PM IST
    By Doha Madani
    A 32-year-old man died after running 13.1-miles to complete the Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday morning.

    The runner collapsed shortly after crossing the finish line, according to NBC New York. The New York Police Department identified the man as Brooklyn resident David Reichman in a statement to NBC News Sunday.

    Officers noted that Reichman was unconscious and unresponsive before being taken to a nearby hospital.

    The New York Fire Department said that staff were on standby at the event when they were alerted to patient in cardiac arrest and rushed him to Coney Island Hospital. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

    The New York Road Runners confirmed the man's death in a statement to NBC New York.

    "We are deeply saddened by the passing of a participant following the 2022 RBC Brooklyn Half," the statement said. "Our thoughts and sympathies are with the runner's family and those close to them."

    There were 22,000 runners at Saturday's event, the first time since 2019 that the Brooklyn Half Marathon was expected to be at full capacity. New York Road Runners was forced to cancel the race in both 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    The man's death at Saturday's race marks the first death for the Brooklyn Half Marathon since 2014, when a 31-year-old runner similarly collapsed after crossing the finish line.

    Five soldiers have collapsed on the steps outside St Paul's Cathedral for the National Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen's Jubilee. One member of the Royal Air Force (RAF), who was part of the military guard of honour lining the steps to St Paul’s, was among those who collapsed.

    Four more military personnel also suffered in the heat as crowds cheered when they were helped back to their feet. A stretcher was even brought out for one RAF soldier who seemed to have collapsed just before Foreign Secretary Liz Truss climbed the steps into the church for the service.

    One person watching on tweeted from Central London and said: "A soldier has just keeled over, received medical attention and is now back on his feet with a cheer." It's not known why he fell to the ground ahead of the service. A Ceremonial Guard also suffered a medical issue and collapsed - before another three fell.

    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.
