The COVID World post date: December 5th, 2021
Former Australian pro-basketball player Ben Madgen has been diagnosed with pericarditis (inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart) shortly after receiving his second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Madgen, who won the Rookie of the Year Award in 2011 in Australia’s number one Basketball League, ended up in the emergency room following the jab.
The news comes after it was reported this week that an Adelaide Crows football player was sent to hospital and diagnosed with pericarditis after his Pfizer shot.
Madgen was surprised when his doctors told him that pericarditis is a common side effect of the Pfizer shot. However, this will hardly be a surprise to readers of this website as we have documented many similar cases.
The 36-year-old took to social media and posted this about the ordeal:
According to his Wikipedia page, Madgen was an accomplished basketball player. He played for Augusta State University from 2006 to 2010 at a college level. Upon completing his college career in 2010, he was the all-time leading scorer for the Jaguars and the Peach Belt Conference with 2,306 points. On March 3rd 2010, his No. 1 jersey was retired, becoming the only active Jaguars player to have his jersey retired.
He scored 23 Points vs. Melbourne United in the NBL on February 16th, 2020, just several months before his retirement from the sport.
As seen below in this highlight reel:
Madgen joins a long list of Australian public figures who were diagnosed with pericarditis after their Pfizer jab including Channel Seven reporter Denham Hitchcock, professional photographer Lee Henderson, Daily Telegraph journalist Georgia Clark, Olympic cyclist Sarah Gigante, TV-star Monique Morley, Australia’s best-known name in the field of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Dan Petrovic, ABC News anchor Eleni Roussos, and Network 10 employee Hannah Scott.
