Officials at the 2018 Winter Olympics are scrambling to contain the outbreak of a vomit-inducing, diarrhea-causing, extremely contagious stomach bug known as norovirus. There are now a total of 177 confirmed cases of the norovirus in South Korea, according to Reuters. That’s a nearly 30 percent increase in cases reported last week. But most people infected with norovirus have been quick to recover.
Organizers told Reuters that 68 of the 177 people with the infection have already recuperated and returned to work at the Olympic games. The bug began on Feb. 3 among a group of security guards staying at the youth training center in Pyeongchang. Nervous organizers have since quarantined at least 1,200 Olympics staffers as a precaution. And South Korean officials deployed roughly 900 military personnel to help with the security shortage.
That distance, recorded just weeks before the action commenced, was considerably further than any American leapt at the Games that year. It was scant consolation. Forced to watch on at home, Adeagbo hung up her spikes and drew a line in the sand. It was time to lead a normal life and leave that Olympic dream behind. Or so she thought. A full decade later, in the icy cold of PyeongChang, Adeagbo will once again run for 30m before launching herself into the air. This time she will do so onto a brakeless 62-pound stainless steel sled with all of Nigeria behind her.
