Translated from dutch for easy reading:


A runner died Saturday morning after completing the Brooklyn Half Marathon, authorities said. The 30-year-old man possibly went into cardiac arrest around 9 a.m. local time and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The runner collapsed after the race. The New York Fire Department said 16 people had been taken to hospital, including the man who died. Four others were in serious condition.



Earlier, 15 tennis players dropped out during the Miami Open, including favorites Paula Badosa and Jannik Sinner. They had to retire in the quarterfinals. In addition, an 'extreme wave of disease' created a battlefield in the cycling peloton. Belgian cyclist Iljo Keisse of Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl said he has "never experienced such a wave of disease". Some teams could only start with one man or not at all, he said. “Never experienced this extreme.”


Pretty normal nowadays, nothing to see, move along.

People keep denying something is going on, totally delusional. I don't have other words for it.

I know it's purely anecdotal but yea both my sister and my mom are experiencing heart issues, it's weird life has been less stressful and other stuff seems to be going well, but I think she is going to the doctor and get it checked out, it's scaring her a bit. She has always been active and recently she was just cleaning out the garage and her heart got racing and she couldn't get it to slow down. Thankfully I have that happen to me on occasion and told her what I do.

I understand it for my mom she is in her 80s but my sister hasn't ever had heart problems but has had anxiety and panic attacks forever so who knows.

Do I think the vax caused this, no I don't but I seriously doubt it's helping the situation, she was so concerned she took a COVID test. She has been scared enough to quit smoking and vaping or atleast she is cutting back, but it's like I told her hell I have mornings where I go oh damn I might take a low dose aspirin just in case we are at that age, our family has a history of it, and really besides all of us have abused the hell out of our bodies for 55 plus years.

The Brooklyn Half Marathon runner likely suffered heatstroke.

Singian said medical staff had been placed from start to finish throughout the race course. The group also monitored weather conditions up to and during the race with city agency officials and weather experts. Singian said the temperature ranged from the low 60s to high 70s during the race, which began at 7 a.m.

A heat advisory cautioning that hot temperatures and high humidity could spark heat illnesses was in effect throughout New York City until 8 p.m. Saturday. Temperatures exceeded 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7 degrees Celsius) as of midday in Brooklyn.

It is, there were threads on these. The cyclists were actually sick with a virus and fever, sinusitis, etc, and injuries.

The tennis players in the extreme heat, had cramps, heat exhaustion and the usual injuries. Videos being circulated of people collapsing were from different years, including one person coughing and struggling due to nearby wildfires from a totally different tournament.

It was 96* here with extremely high humidity yesterday but I don't think that had anything to do with it, they probably clotted up at altitude on their way to NYC.

Im just waiting for the usual's to come in here and tell us this is normal and 15 to 16 people dropping in a marathon or a tennis competition is normal and has been for 100 years.

Being in the PNW these temps are usually normal for a lot of us, though we've yet to experience them this year. There are a lot of places in the western half of the US that have 90-100+ temps throughout much of the summer, so it seems odd to us that there's so much attention given to what would be low summer temps around our parts.

So the runner that died in 2014 was that vaccine related also?


TextSaturday’s death marked the first fatality in the race since 2014, when a 31-year-old runner fell to the ground after crossing the finish line.


What about the calls to cancel the run yesterday due to 97% humidity on top of 80 degree Temps?


TextMaybe an organizer or health official should have called it” because of the conditions, the cop said.

On its own 80 degree Temps are most likely not going to cause heat stroke or other heat related clinical events. 80 degrees + 97% RH + sustained physical exertion however seems like a really bad idea.

It is a shame, but people really need to understand what their body is telling them.

Also, we shouldn't discount the possibility that the vaccine played a part in this, every shot reacts differently in each person.

For instance, I knew people got that anthrax shot laid out for days recovering, me I had a sore shoulder. I got the J&J shot and was laid out for 3 days, while others I worked with just had a sore shoulder. Point being the shot could have had an effect on the runners contributing to the problems.

If we blame things on global warming, then the real causes will never be found till this attitude is corrected.

That happens all the time. Look at how they blamed all lung cancer increases on Tobacco use even though less and less people were smoking because it was said to be cancerous. Then they blamed it on second hand smoke and the smell of people who were smoking....sure smoking tobacco does cause some lung and other cancers but there is something else in our environment responsible for this and it won't be identified if they keep chasing the cigarette trail. Plus the stuff they add to cigarettes to make them stay moister for longer and the chemistry added to them now so they go out if it isn't constantly puffed are definitely not lowering cancer risk...those chemicals also have properties that cause problems.

Could these be vaccine related deaths and illnesses? or are they from effects of a previous virus infection which did damage to the body? Blame it on the ninety degree day is what I am seeing, not rational thinking.

We live in Upper Michigan, it was thirty eight this morning and it was up to sixty three yesterday. A ninety degree day would be great....why would anyone want to go on a long run when it is ninety, there is insanity running the country.

How come before the covid pandemic no such massive issues with runners at the marathon were reported during heat waves?

If any only a few?

How come you don't know about it? Have you never been involved in an endurance sport?

So you have the details on why those other people were taken to the hospital right since all sources just say for injuries ?

This marathon was a morning event.

Temp was around 70 degrees: sports.yahoo.com...

You left out a key metric in something like this, what was the humidity?

What was the temp when the race ended?

What was the heat index when the race ended?

A few in the past.
Normally if there is a heat wave of sort i am surprised they would still allow it.
