A former swimmer's thoughts on Lia:

“None of you cared about women's sports before you had a "reason" to. Beyond that though, Lia has not dominated this sport. Nor have any other trans athletes. She placed 5th and 8th in other events at that meet.
(Also the 500 free sucks and I've even seen many a MAN flop out of the water following that event. I give mad props to whoever does this event. I purposely sandbaged it so I would never have to do it again)
"But her wing span and height!! THE BIOLOGICAL ADVANTAGES!!!!!!" @MichaelPhelps has a longer than average wingspan, a larger web in this feet and hands, hyperextended joints (main advantage in his ankles), and produced less lactic acid than other athletes.

How #sleep loss may make physical #exercise more challenging for the #heart:

We find that sleep loss ⬆️ the exercise 🚴‍♀️-induced ⬆️ in blood levels of a #cardiac stress biomarker vs. after normal sleep

Natural (unmedicated) #birth
feels like weighted squats
at the gym for 12 hours.
#PainlessBirth
Its exhausting and drones on and its uncomfortable, and you’re hungry and thirsty. Its a marathon. But u don’t feel pain until the next day.
#neuroscience
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
I was able to achieve this maybe for a couple reasons:
Before #pregnancy I was fit AF.
Exercise was not painful.

At all.

Exercise changes pain reception.
Athletes feel LESS PAIN.
And the uterus is
just a GIANT muscle
which needs extra oxygen.
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30379385/
IF YOU FAIL TO BREATHE
while exercising,
YOUR MUSCLES HURT.
This isn’t bc exercise hurts.
Its bc lactic acid builds up around your tissues and without excreting muscle cell wastes,
the body feels pain.

I have a hypothesis,
and I need help.

Why state of #sports in India needs a push now?
.
.
.
A Thread
@IndiaSports @YASMinistry @Media_SAI
The #school curriculums still have tiny space for sports. Indian mentality goes on with the saying, “Kheloge kundoge toh banoge kharab, padhoge likhoge toh banoge nawab.”
This means that those who focus on sports are not valued, but those who are only focused on studies excel. With such a mentality, how can India expect to compete with nations like #China, the #USA, the #UK etc in the #Olympics?

This is the biggest story in World #Sport at the moment

The way the narrative is starting to play out is so reminiscent of the #Trump election - It's a scary template!

Regulated media V's Unregulated Media competing to tell the story 🤯#Boxing #Tribal

bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/5…
For any #boxing / #sport fan with no previous knowledge of these characters, we should be sceptical of simplistic caricatures that are served up by Online Fans OR stenographers masquerading as journalists!

There's a lot of sh*t out there! 🤳💻

Research & Critical thinking! 🤔
If we accept the @panorama programme #boxingandthemob then we have a situation whereby #OrganisedCrime has not only infiltrated BUT is dominating a Global/Professional Sport!

If that's the case, what's to stop these forces taking over #Football OR other major Sport next?

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

‘Although proportionately scarce, exercise may paradoxically trigger sudden cardiac arrest in individuals with #cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly those who were previously sedentary or have advanced CVD.’
‘In parallel with the drive to promote #exercise in all individuals, physicians will be confronted with an increasing number of enquiries from individuals with established risk factors for coronary artery disease or established CVD about participation in exercise‘
‘Such consultations need to strike a balance between the multiple benefits of #exercise, the small risk of sudden death, and the patient’s goals for cardiorespiratory fitness & ongoing participation in relatively strenuous exercise following a #cardiovascular diagnosis.’

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.
