American Hopefuls for Beijing Games Must Have Vaccine, US Olympic Committee Says
09/23/2021 5:55am

U.S. athletes trying to make the Winter Olympics will have to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 under a groundbreaking new policy announced Wednesday by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee.CEO Sarah Hirshland wrote in a letter obtained by The Associated Press that, starting Nov. 1, the USOPC will require staff, athletes and others utilizing training centers and other USOPC facilities to be vaccinated.The requirement, she said, will also apply to our full Team USA delegation at future Olympic and Paralympic Games.According to the team website, athletes will have to show proof of vaccination by Dec. 1. The U.S. is expected to send around 240 athletes to the Winter Olympics, though the mandate will impact hundreds more anyone with hopes of making the final squad. The International Olympic Committee has been encouraging vaccines but did not require them for athletes who competed in the Summer Olympics. With that guidance, most national Olympic committees, including the USOPC, followed suit by strongly recommending the vaccines but not requiring them. The IOCs first Playbook, a booklet offering health-related and other guidance for the Winter Games, is due out next month.More Olympics NewsRhode Island4 hours agoOlympic Swimmer Elizabeth Beisel Hits the Ocean to Honor Her Fathergold medalistsJul 25All Team USA Gold Medals of the Tokyo OlympicsEarlier this year, around 83 of the more than 600 American athletes who qualified for Tokyo got the shots in time for the Summer Games, according to the USOPCs final count. The IOC estimated about 85 of all athletes in the Olympic village had been vaccinated. There were some Americans, including golfer Bryson DeChambeau and swimmer Michael Andrew, who spoke openly about not receiving shots. DeChambeau ended up testing positive shortly before he was supposed to head to Japan and missed the games, while Andrew said he had contracted COVID-19 previously and didnt plan to get vaccinated.In her letter, Hirshland said the USOPC had been hopeful that many COVID-19 restrictions would be lifted by the end of the Tokyo Games.The stark reality is that this pandemic is far from over, she wrote. This step will increase our ability to create a safe and productive environment for Team USA athletes and staff, and allow us to restore consistency in planning, preparation and service to athletes.Hirshland said there would be a process for athletes to apply for an exemption.The USOPC policy veers from those at other American sports organizations, including the NFL and NBA, which dont have mandates. Neither does the NHL, though it has strict protocols for unvaccinated players, including stipulations that allow teams to suspend unvaccinated players if they miss games due to COVID-19 or travel restrictions related to the virus.The NHL has an agreement to allow some of its players to compete in the Olympics.

Olympic Swimmer Elizabeth Beisel Hits the Ocean to Honor Her Father
09/23/2021 5:43am

When Elizabeth Beisels dad got the awful news pancreatic cancer the Olympic swimming medalist knew she had to do something, anything, that would give him a reason to get up every morning.Off the coast of her native Rhode Island is a popular vacation spot were Ted Beisel and his family had spent so many treasured moments over the years. Voila Elizabeth Beisel decided she would swim to Block Island nearly 10 1/2 miles from the mainland to honor her ailing father and raise money for cancer research.Never mind that she had retired from competition after three Olympics. Never mind that she had done all her serious swimming at a pool, never in treacherous open waters like the Atlantic Ocean.Go big or go home, right she said over the phone this week.Sadly, her father wont be there to cheer her on Saturday when she attempts to become the first woman to complete the grueling swim to Block Island.Ted Beisel died July 1, roughly seven months after his cancer was diagnosed. He was 71.But his daughter has no doubt that her quest made his final months a bit more bearable. He knew that he and his fight was going to help somebody else beat cancer, or maybe just spend an extra few weeks with a loved one, she said. This entire swim gave my dad a sense of new meaning. Thats all you can ask for as a daughter.Ted Beisels spirit will be looming when Elizabeth steps into those cool Atlantic waters for a daunting journey that figures to take up to seven hours to complete.If she actually makes it.Theres definitely some trepidation, only because its something Ive never done before, Beisel said. I believe I can, but I havent done it. Thats something mentally I will have to overcome especially in the middle of the swim, when inevitably I will want to quit. The 29-year-old Beisel competed in three Olympics over her long career on the U.S. national team, becoming as well known for her booming voice and uninhibited personality as she was her excellence in the water.She was the youngest member of the American team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, a few weeks shy of her 16th birthday when she just missed out on medals in her two events with fourth- and fifth-place finishes.Four years later in London, Beisel claimed silver in the 400-meter individual medley and bronze in the 200 backstroke. She closed out her Olympic career with a sixth-place finish in the 400 IM at the 2016 Rio Games.She wont be racing the clock on her way to Block Island, but she is following all rules and regulations of marathon swimming. Beisel will be wearing a regulation one-piece suit, similar to the one she used to practice in as a pool swimmer. Shell only have one cap and one set of goggles. She cant grab onto either of the two boats accompanying her to get in a little rest.The water temperature is expected to be in the upper 60s roughly 20 degrees Celsius, a good 10 degrees colder than she was used to in the pool. Shes been taking cold showers to acclimate her body to the chilly conditions.Beisel is most concerned about the winds and potential swells that could throw her off course or make her swim even more strenuous than shes already expecting. In fact, she had initially planned to make her attempt on Wednesday, but rough seas prompted her safety team to push it back three days in hopes of calmer weather.This is a completely different beast, Beisel said. I literally do not know what to expect at all. When I stepped up on the blocks in the 400 IM, I knew what to expect every time.Beisel began training in February, but the pandemic made it difficult to stay on a consistent schedule. Still, she feels prepared for the most grueling swim of her life.If nothing else, shes got plenty of motivation.Beisel talks lovingly of her father, a construction worker and avid Green Bay Packers fan whose wealth of knowledge always left his family in awe.He was thrilled when Beisel told him of her plan to swim to Block Island and took a huge interest in her training but didnt want to reveal that he was the reason she was raising money for the fight against cancer.He didnt want anybody to feel sorry for him, Beisel said. This wasnt just about him, but everybody who was fighting cancer or had lost someone to cancer.She has already raised more than $121,000 through the web site blockcancer.org and figures to easily surpass her goal of $125,000 by the end of the month. No matter what happens Saturday, the effort had all been worth it.Hopefully I can do this, Beisel said. But if dont, trust me, I will have tried my hardest. I wont go down without a fight.

First Julio Uras. Now Walker Buehler.Thats back-to-back off outings from key cogs in a Los Angeles rotation that boasted the best ERA in baseball. Logging too many innings Wearing downDodgers manager Dave Roberts had a simpler explanation: All guys have some bit of fatigue right now, he said.Sam Hilliard lined a three-run homer, C.J. Cron had four hits and the Colorado Rockies snapped a five-game skid at Coors Field by beating the NL West title-chasing Dodgers 10-5 on Wednesday night.The Dodgers may be in danger of losing more ground to division-leading San Francisco. They entered the day a game behind the Giants, who played late in San Diego.This had all the makings of a pitchers duel with All-Stars Buehler and Germn Mrquez on the mound. Instead, it was anything but, as the teams combined for 19 hits, including three homers and even a two-run double from Mrquez that chased his counterpart from the game.My job is to set the tone, Buehler said. I didnt do that.Buehler gave up five runs over 3 2/3 innings in his career-high 31st start of the season. He refuses to blame it on the volume of innings. Uras echoed a similar chorus the night before.Its a me problem and something I need to address and figure out, Buehler said. We have a great team and a lot of guys that are really talented. I want to be a cog in that. I want to fit in. Right now, Im not even doing that.Luke Raley displayed his power by drilling a two-run homer to center in the third inning that was measured by Statcast at 472 feet. Its tied for the Dodgers third-longest tracked by Statcast since 2015.His mom was on hand, too. Its the first time shes got to see him play in the big leagues.Its really awesome I was able to do that today in front of her, Raley said.There was a big collision in the seventh when Charlie Blackmon ran into reliever Alex Vesia on a dribbler up the first-base line. Blackmons helmet went flying and Vesia tumbled to the ground, losing control of the baseball. Blackmon reached on an error credited to Vesia, who took a few warmup pitchers before continuing.Vesia gave up a run-scoring double to Cron. Hilliard later connected on a three-run homer after the Dodgers intentionally walked Elias Daz to pitch to him. Hilliards 12th homer of the season made it 10-5.An inning after the collision, Blackmon came up again and was hit by a pitch from Evan Phillips.Charlie Blackmon 19 of the Colorado Rockies scores against catcher Will Smith 16 of the Los Angeles Dodgers on a C.J.

Were playing complete games right now.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: OF Chris Taylor was out of the starting lineup as he dealt with a sore neck. Outfielder AJ Pollock hamstring was activated from the injured list. He grounded out in a pinch-hitting role in the sixth.Rockies: Manager Bud Black said OF/INF Connor Joes season is officially over due to a nagging hamstring injury. Rockies RHP Peter Lambert will make his first start since Sept. 20, 2019 on Friday. He had Tommy John surgery in July 2020.LATE RULINGJustin Turner brought home a run on a fly out to right with the bases loaded in the fifth. But he wasnt initially credited with an RBI after Trea Turner wandered too far off second base and was tagged out. It initially went down as a 9-6 double play. But Elias Sports Bureau later ruled it a sacrifice fly and credited Turner with his 82nd RBI of the season.BROADCASTERS SIDELINEDJoe Davis will be missing from Dodgers broadcasts after testing positive for the coronavirus. He was fully vaccinated, the team said in a statement, and will isolate at home.
