The two-time Olympic champion in the 4x100m freestyle relay had to quit the International Swimming League (ISL) weekend race in Naples due to illness.
27-year-old Wilson ended up in the hospital, despite being fully vaccinated and adhering to strict anti-virus protocols during competitions.
She captioned a photo of her hospital bed on Instagram.
“I feel unlucky, but this is an alarm clock. COVID is a serious thing and when you get it, it can hit you hard. I would be stupid if I didn’t say it scares me.
“I’m taking time off and I’m sure I’ll be ready to come back soon,” said a member of the LA Current team on the social network.
Wilson has the worst behind her and is expecting a full recovery. However, he is still undergoing several checkups in the hospital and will have some time for observation.
“Even though I had two doses of the vaccine and followed ISL precautions, the virus found me.
I’ve had a crazy few months and I think I was more likely to get sick because of the physical and mental exhaustion.”
Plus 4 x 100m gold medals v.sp. At the 2016 and 2020 Olympics, Wilson also won the silver in Rio and the bronze in Tokyo in the relay. She also has three World Championship titles in her collection.
