A List of World Class Athletes Who Died Or Suffered Severe Injuries After COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID World post date: January 15th, 2022

Back in November, The COVID World published an article listing 11 world-class athletes who had died or been left after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. We did not anticipate that things would be so bad that merely two months later, there have been enough stories to make another list.

What follows is yet again a list of 11 world-class athletes from around the world that have either died or been left seriously injured by the COVID-19 vaccines in recent months.

The head coach of the team, Aleksandar Stanojevic, was quoted saying after the incident:

“He [Gomes] collapsed in training and the situation is extremely serious.

Gomes, who is considered one of the best players in the Serbian Super Liga, received his COVID shot in October last year along with teammate Quincy Menig and coach Stanojevic, who personally took the Cape Verdean national team player to the vaccination site allegedly because he was reluctant to receive the jab.

Sarah Gigante: 21-Year-Old Australian Olympic Cyclist Developed Myopericarditis After COVID-19 Vaccination

Australian Olympic cyclist Sarah Gigante suffered heart problems in August last year, just days after participating in the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Gigante was repeatedly hospitalized and eventually diagnosed with myopericarditis, which is a combination of an inflammation of the heart muscle and pericardium, the sac surrounding the heart.

The 21-year-old had been fully vaccinated prior to the health scare.

Gigante was asked in a Q&A last year if she believed her heart condition was a result of the COVID vaccine, to which she responded:

“I don’t know what triggered my sickness (and there are many prospects – some individuals within the feedback part appear positive that it was the COVID vaccine), however it doesn’t matter what it was, the actual fact is that I was extremely unfortunate.

I simply need to say that vaccines work, and these vaccines particularly save lives. I’m very lucky to have been in a position to be protected towards the horrible illness that’s COVID-19 and I encourage everybody who has the chance to embrace it with open arms and a raised sleeve.

An emotional Agüero said at his retirement press conference:

“I have decided to stop playing professional football. It is a very difficult moment.

The decision I have taken is for my health; after the problem [heart condition] that had started a month and a half ago.

Agüero’s first serious medical issue surfaced in October last year when he was taken to hospital after a league match against Alaves, in which he experienced chest pains and breathing difficulties.

Australian UFC fighter and jiu-jitsu black belt world champion Craig Jones had to drop out of a fight and pause training last year after suffering a serious injury from his first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine that caused his stomach to fill up with fluid. 

Jones announced the news last year on Instagram.

“I’m out guys. One of the unlucky ones that had an adverse reaction to the Covid vaccine. I won’t bore you with all my symptoms but ended up carrying a bunch of fluid around my stomach and can’t train let alone compete.” 

Jones has a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and is considered one of the best grapplers of his generation by winning numerous prestigious events, including multiple belt titles in the Polaris Invitational promotion. He also finished 2nd place at the ADCC World Championship in 2019.

John Fleck: Scottish Football Player Collapsed And Convulsed During Match Just Months After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine

Scottish professional footballer John Fleck collapsed in the midst of a league game in November last year and was taken off the field on a stretcher before being rushed hospital.

Fleck, who plays as a midfielder for English club Sheffield United, had received his second jab in August last year according to The Star,

The Dailymail released an article shortly after the incident saying that scientists had “confirmed” that Fleck’s collapse was not due to the COVID vaccine. However, the article gave no details about how that conclusion was reached except for a sports cardiologist, Professor Guido Pieles commenting:

“At present, I would say this is still a coincidence.”

Fleck began his career with Glasgow Rangers, making his senior debut in 2008 at the age of just 16. He was hyped in the media as a future star. He joined Sheffield United eight years later in 2016, helping the club achieve two promotions in three years, moving up from League One to the Premier League.

Filip Ingebrigtsen: Olympic Athlete Struggled For 7 Months After A Severe Reaction To COVID-19 Vaccine

Norwegian 1500 meter runner Filip Ingebrigtsen suffered a debilitating reaction from the COVID vaccine that lasted for over 7 months. The Olympic athlete’s performance in the Tokyo games fell was far below his usual standard, with no obvious explanation from him and his team until tests revealed side effects from his first jab.

When questioned in October last year about the vaccine, Ingebrigtsen said that he ‘would have done the same thing again’, reflecting a somewhat stoic attitude to his ‘negative results‘.

“In retrospect, when you get negative results and that puts limits on whether you can do your job, you regret it. But I’m pretty sure I would have done the same thing again.

I feel bad that it has had such a negative effect and I wish I didn’t have these problems. I didn’t know it would turn out like this. Sadly, this time it went wrong for me.

German professional basketball player Paul Zipser was hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage and pulmonary embolism last year after he became ill shortly before a game.
