Olympic Athletes Fighting for a Long Time Covid: ‘I’m Really Fighting to Exercise’

READ: Tokyo 2020 Olympic bubble system is ‘kind of broken,’ says public health expert Her road to recovery is still ongoing, but her Olympic dreams for Tokyo are over. “I found it really difficult, I was really upset,” she said about dropping out of the Games. “I gave myself the space to process it, allowed myself to grieve basically.”

Now, she wants to warn other young athletes — especially those flying into Tokyo for the delayed Games — to take Covid-19 seriously. “I’m really struggling to exercise still,” Cousins said. “Now, I can probably do three 20-minute sessions in a week, super lightly.”

“People who are young and healthy, who exercise, they don’t think they’re going to get it,” Cousins said. “It’s important that whoever gets the virus, just be really careful.” She said even now, the “intense fatigue” only allows her to carry out a few hours of normal activity per day.

Priscilla Loomis, a high jumper from the US who competed at the Rio Olympics in 2016, was hoping to represent Antigua and Barbuda in Tokyo due to her dual citizenship. But a bad case of Covid-19 derailed her chances and she failed to qualify. But for other athletes, Tokyo was their last chance at an Olympic medal.

‘I’m in mourning’ Cousins is hoping to get back on form ready to compete at the Paris Olympics in 2024.
