Australian curler Tahli Gill has been cleared to compete in the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. Test results revealed the 19-year-old had positive COVID-19 levels, but the athlete is still undergoing preparations for the games. It is unclear if she will be able to play in the finals, but the AOC is pressing for her reinstatement. The virus, which causes respiratory illness, was first found in Canada during the 2016 Olympic Games. The infection is caused by the coughing of a person who is infected with it. It causes the coughing and sneezing, which is why it is common in curling. The virus causes severe diarrhea, headaches, and fever, so treatment should be taken immediately. After a routine COVID test came back positive on Sunday, the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) made the decision to allow Tahli Gill to compete in the Games. But they had to make arrangements with Swiss officials for her to fly home. The Australian Olympic Committee has said they are working with the athlete to get her cleared.

However, the AOC isn't backing down. The AOC has urged the AOC to suspend the games involving Tahli Gill. The Australian Olympic Committee's (AOC) said the decision to withdraw Tahli Gill is not an injury or a medical condition but the athletes must remain focused on the competition. They will have a bye on Saturday's first session and face Canada and Switzerland on Sunday. The two matches will then be forfeited and she will finish 0-7.
