Unvaccinated US swimmer sparks debate as Olympics start

• Associated Press

DiRado sparked the discourse this week with a lengthy thread on Twitter in which she wrote that she's "disappointed" in Andrew's decision to compete unvaccinated and his reasoning behind it.

Andrew revealed earlier this month that he isn't vaccinated after being asked about his status by a reporter.

"My reason behind it is, for one, it was kind of a last moment, I didn't want to put anything in my body that I didn't know how I would potentially react to," he said.

"As an athlete on the elite level, everything we do is very calculated and understood. For me, in the training cycle, especially leading up to trials, I didn't want to risk any days out. There were periods where you take a vaccine, you have to deal with some days off."
