‘Tragic’: World Champion Pole Vaulter Dies at Age 29

A former world champion pole vaulter died Thursday at age 29.

Shawn Barber, a three-time NCAA champion with the University of Akron in Ohio, died “from medical complications,” the school’s Department of Athletics said in a news release Thursday.

The athlete’s specific cause of death was not released, but the university said he “had fallen ill and had been experiencing poor health for some time.”

The release described Barber, who became the Zips’ first male individual national champion in 2014, as a “well-liked teammate and competitor.”

His agent, Paul Doyle, confirmed that he died at his home in Kingwood, Texas, according to The Associated Press.

“More than just an incredible athlete, Shawn was such a good-hearted person that always put others ahead of himself,” Doyle told the AP.

“It’s tragic to lose such a good person at such a young age,” he said.

Doyle Management posted about the loss on Instagram, calling Barber a “friend that will never be forgotten.”

“He will be greatly missed,” it said.

Barber, who had dual citizenship in the U.S. and Canada, set an NCAA championship meet record with a jump of 19-4.75 in the 2015 indoor championships, besting the mark of 19-2.25 set by Jacob Davis of the University of Texas in 1999, according to the University of Arkon news release.

He brought home a gold medal from the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto and represented Canada in the 2016 Olympics, finishing 10th.

Barber’s best vault was 19-8¼ on Jan. 15, 2016, which is still the Canadian record.

His final competition was in January 2020 in Germany.

Barber is survived by his mother, Ann; his father, George; and his brother, David, the news release said.

    The ‘clot shot’ was mandated as of January 21, 2021. A couple of years ago, you’d read or hear about an isolated incident, where a teenager, or persons in the 20-37 years of age, (and w/ NO negative medical history), would be experiencing unusual symptoms, totally uncharacteristic for them. In some, they would find blood clots, some got very sick, and some died. Then, last year, examples of the effects of these ‘death shots’ (which were mandated by governments, world-wide), were starting to snowball, into dozens of incidents each day. Currently, we’re experiencing HUNDREDS of cases daily just in the U.S.. Some are reported, most are not.

    THE GLOBAL ELITES ARE KILLING US. WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO WAKE UP TO THIS FACT?!!

    They’re killing us w/ the (purposeful) release of the COVID-19 virus, the lockdowns, the masks, the mandated vaccines, the ‘boosters’, even the COVID test kits have been found to have harmful chemicals…and here’s the ‘clincher’: What the ‘conspiracy theorists’ were spewing at the advent of the vaccine mandates – is true! IT IRREPARABLY CHANGES YOUR DNA.

    The Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology found that the gene-editing COVID-19 vaccination shots tend to cause, “neurodegenerative disease, myocarditis, Bell’s palsy, liver disease, impaired adaptive immunity, impaired DNA damage response and tumorigenesis.” Another report published by The Lancet in February 2022 that found it causes “risk of infection, elongated hospitalization, and many times death up to 9 months after a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.”

    In other words, the first shot COMPROMISES YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, and every shot after that DOUBLES YOUR CHANCES FOR DEATH.

    Recently, there are numerous reports of several embalmers across the United States now noticing “fibrous” and “rubbery clots” inside corpses they prepare. They never saw anything like this until sometime after the COVID-19 pandemic, and subsequent vaccines and boosters. Prior to 2020, 2021, they all stated they probably would see somewhere between 5-10% of the bodies [having] blood clots. Now 50-70% of the bodies have them. These clots have a rubbery feeling and are very long as they exit the veins used during the embalming procedure. They appear like earthworms. They also noticed these same corpses were extremely deficient in potassium, magnesium, and zinc. According to cardiologist Dr. Wade Hamilton “The fact that the magnesium, potassium, and zinc are very low in the samples could suggest that they are not the usual post-mortem clots, that in fact THERE WAS NO BLOOD FLOW IN THESE VESSELS”. Richard Hirschman, a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Alabama agrees w/ several of his colleagues across the nation, in that the cause of the blood clots’ origin is from the COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.

    HOW MUCH MORE PROOF DO WE NEED?!

    Thousands around the world have died from inoculations mandated by global elites. and facilitated through country regimes. A recently released report from a very credible source stated as of October 2023, over 17 million people (worldwide) have died from the vaccines and boosters. It’s time for every conservative, patriotic millionaire in this country, (and others who believe in freedom), to pool their resources, escrow a BILLION dollars, hire the best, international assassins money can buy, and (starting w/ George Soros, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Pope Fauci, Obummer, and the Clintons), KILL the top 1000 global elites responsible for this INSANITY – DONE. Anything less, expect more of the same (and to get worse).

    WE NEED TO ACT NOW! IT’S A MATTER OF WORLD SELF-PRESERVATION.

    The global elites are in full-gear w/ their NWO agenda. Within the next 2 years, 80% of EVERYONE who has taken the vaccine WILL BE DEAD – and that includes our military. That’s when China will make its move (through the United Nations), to invade America. Sounds crazy? Think about this: Did you even DREAM of what you’re going through today – only 5 short years ago?

    When they intentionally refuse to mention the jab, that’s probably it.
