A high school track coach in Oregon, Dave Turnbull, called for an end to rules mandating mask-wearing during competition after one of his student athletes collapsed from “complete oxygen debt.” Track star Maggie Williams was running the 800-meter race when she collapsed to the ground just meters short of the finish line just as she was on the verge of achieving a school record. Coach Turnbull said that he warned authorities that it was dangerous to run the 800-meter race wearing a mask. He said that the Oregon School Activities Association is now working with the Oregon Health Authority to remove the mask mandate. The Oregon Health Authority states on its website: “Face coverings, or masks, are now required statewide for all adults and starting Friday, July 24, for all children 5 and up, in all indoor public spaces and outdoors when physically distancinf isn’t possible.”
A high school track coach in Oregon is calling for an end to rules mandating mask-wearing during competition after one of his athletes collapsed from “complete oxygen debt.”

While excited to get back to competition, Summit coach Dave Turnbull was not thrilled about the masks, according to The Bulletin.
The biggest problem for the coach and his runners came in the 800-meter race when student Maggie Williams collapsed on the track just meters short of the finish line even as she was on the verge of achieving a school record.
“I was pushing so hard and everything went blurry and I just fell,” Williams told The Bulletin. “But luckily I fell at the right spot and crossed the line with my head.”
This end to Williams’ race worried coach Turnbull. He blamed his runner’s collapse on the mask.
“I am concerned with the mask rule,” Turnbull said. “This is what I am worried about, and I said this at the beginning of the season. You get a kid running the 800 with a mask on, it is actually dangerous. They don’t get the oxygen that they need. This rule needs to change.”
The coach added that his student suffered “complete oxygen debt,” according to OregonLive.com.
