Wow, kind of beyond belief that someone would choose not to be vaccinated but be part of a team, workout with others, travel and participate in the Olympics, where Covid is rising and affecting the public. Some sort of personal choice about his own health and training???
Hopefully, he saw fit to skip all those other vaccines that cut into his freedom and training - measles, chicken pox, polio, hepatitis, etc. - and refused to put that seat tray up when instructed on the flight! Luckily, he'll probably never know if he was an asymptomatic carrier, or how many others he endangered. Still, he's running well, and will have that USA on his singlet, so might as well cheer for him, right!?
He tested positive for COVID in the recent past and presumably isolated and didn't put others at risk. In Tokyo he will be subject to daily testing so as soon as it pops up he will definitely know he is an asymptomatic carrier. In addition, the rules in place are pretty tight.
You're acting like he's a regular Joe making some reckless decision when he's a 19-year old who already had COVID and likely was advised by a doctor to not get the vaccine until 90 days after his COVID test. That is the standard timetable. With that being the case if that put him into June, July or August for his first shot it's pretty understandable why he'd wait until after his competition to start his series.
