The French Boxer Federation informed about the player’s death. “It is with great sadness that we learn about the death of 31-year-old Julie Le Galliard, who died Sunday night in a hospital in Marseille after a two-month battle with complications from COVID-19,” the organization said in a statement.
About the player’s death, he wrote, inter alia, the daily “Le Parisien”. Le Galliard was an experienced boxer who won the national championship in the weight category under 57 kilograms (she won it in 2015). In the years 2013-2016 she played in the national team.
French media indicates that Le Galliard was vaccinated with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, which she herself reported on social media.
The position of the family
The family of the deceased athlete, however, distances itself from comments linking the death of the 31-year-old with vaccination for the coronavirus. The relatives of the women emphasize that she had poor immunity.
Recently, Le Galliard was in the intensive care unit.
