High School Athlete Passes Out after Being Forced to Wear a Mask During Track Meet.


A high school runner who was about to set a record collapsed at the finish line and blamed the outdoor mask mandate in her state for the tumble.

Maggie Williams, a junior at Summit High School in Bend, Oregon, was about to set a record in the 800 meter before she collapsed at the finish line due to a lack of oxygen from having to wear a mask while competing.

“I felt like I just wasn’t being able to get a full breath, and multiple times of that happening, not being able to get enough air, it just, I just felt super dizzy and then eventually passed out,” Williams told NewsChannel 21. “Clearly in the past this has never happened and then this race that I was wearing a mask, it did happen which I don’t think is a coincidence.”
