I had norovirus once. Vomited every half hour for a whole night and felt like death the next day. If this guy genuinely had it and only threw up once I am impressedâ€¦
I have also had it. I couldn't imagine leaving the toilet (stuff coming our both ends) for a day, and then hardly enough energy to move out of bed next two days. I don't care how much of a competitor is, if Makwala had it there's no way he'd be trying to run.
He was reportedly on the warmup track. If the Norovirus is that bad, he definitely did not have it. What a lot of horse shit from the Iaaf. The commentators on the IAAF stream briefly mentioned Makwala when talking about Amos, saying he didn't get sick and that Makwala wouldn't be in the 400m. He is also already a DNS on the results page. It pains me to see an athlete qualify for the final ten denied his chance to go for a world title. They cut to WVN inside the stadium and he looked confused. What a load of horse sh*t
