Shut it Down?: Sports Stars Beat Coronavirus, Then Beat the Competition


With the media acting as if a positive test for the coronavirus is a death sentence, it is interesting to note the many sports stars who have gone on to become champions after testing positive.

Journalist Jordan Schachtel recently posted a series of tweets showing that a positive coronavirus test is not the end of everything. In fact, there has already been a bevy of athletes who have gone on to achieve personal bests after getting over a positive test for the virus.

For instance, PGA star Dustin Johnson tested positive for the virus early in October. By November, he was winning a green jacket at the 2020 Masters tournament.

Schachtel then noted that Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit with a positive test result in July. By November he was named the National League’s Most Valuable Player for 2020.
