A Taiwanese woman known as the “Bikini Climber” for climbing dangerous mountains crags while wearing a bikini was found frozen to death after a 20-meter-fall, a report says.

She probably knew that this would happen one day, and she had reported been seriously injured in the past from her obsession with social media.

Gigi Wu, 36, was renowned on Taiwanese social media for climbing mountains in a bikini and posting sexy photos from mountain peaks. Not only did she climb without protection from the elements, but she also climbed without companions — a dangerous game even with clothing! Sadly, Wu made one climb too many.

Eight days into a 25-day solo hike on Saturday Wu reportedly called a friend to say she’d fell down a ravine in Central Taiwan’s Yushan Mountain. She also said she was trapped at the bottom of the ravine with a broken leg and could not get out, Taiwan News reported (via the New York Post).

Due to weather conditions, rescuers could not reach Wu for over a day.

Authorities said that the tempers had fallen to freezing overnight.

By the time Wu was fund she had already died from exposure.

According to the Post:

Wu, who also went by Wu Chi-yun, was a local social-media star who posed on some of Taiwan’s highest peaks in barely-there outfits.

In one image, she stands in a rainbow bikini and blue hat, with treacherous boulders in the background.

On Christmas Eve, she shared an image showing her scratched-up legs after being injured in a fall that she said she was lucky to survive.

Mark this as yet another person essentially committing suicide in pursuit of Internet and social media fame.

This beautiful woman is just another victim of the social media age.

‘Transgender’ Weightlifter Set to Destroy Natural-Born Women at Tokyo Olympics

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has foolishly agreed to allow a man claiming to be a woman to enter the weightlifting competition.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has foolishly agreed to allow a man claiming to be a woman to enter the weightlifting competition as a woman, and now that man is set to utterly destroy every natural-born female in the games. New Zealander Laurel Hubbard, 43, was born a man, but is now claiming to be a female weightlifter. And so far, every single competition he’s entered as a woman, he has made the natural-born female contestants look like 90-pound weaklings. And now that Hubbard has been allowed to join the New Zealand team, he is set to destroy every natural-born female contestant who will compete in Tokyo. Hubbard fell to sixth in 2019 after suffering an injury, but he is now fit and ready to go. Hubbard competed as a man for years in New Zealand, but seven years ago began transitioning to a female. Hubbard is now set to compete in the women’s 87-plus kg division in the Australian Open in Canberra on Sunday, NBC reports. The New Zealander won last month’s World Cup in Rome, lifting 270kg to beat Ukraine’s Anastasiia Lysenko by 4kg. Olympics candidates need to complete six events or more in the 18 months before the Olympic tryouts to qualify. Hubbard has qualified to compete as a woman per the newest rules put in place by the International Weightlifting Federation’s guidelines as well as the International Olympic Committee’s rules. Natural-born men who wish to compete as a woman must have testosterone levels are below ten nanomoles per liter for at least a year before their first competition, the IOC says. The IOC’s rules are not without controversy, though. The IOC recently shelved attempts to change its rules, but pulled back when the committee’s own scientists could not agree on standards. Hubbard has been tearing through…

Tokyo Woke No Mo’: IOC Bans BLM Apparel for Olympics

…and it was the players’ idea!

Over the course of the last several years, Americans have been inundated with the melding of sports and politics, as athletes from around the nation continue to express their political and cultural beliefs while on the job. For many, this has been an annoyance and not an elevation of the game, as Americans continues to complain about their “escape” from the real world now being tainted with a whole lot of drama from the real world. That won’t be the case in Tokyo, however, as the International Olympic Committee looks to put the kibosh on virtue signaling.  Olympics athletes will not be allowed to wear “Black Lives Matter” apparel during ceremonies at the upcoming Tokyo Olympic games, according to new rules posted by the International Olympics Committee (IOC). The IOC revealed its newest policy changes last month, noting that no political demonstrations will be allowed on the field of play. And IOC officials have since confirmed that the rules also ban any use of Black Lives Matter imagery, logos, apparel, slogans, and activism, according to TMZ Sports. The move came after the IOC polled the participating athletes on the subject. The IOC claimed that its prohibitions on athlete activism came after a poll found that a “majority” of the 3,500 athletes polled favored the ban. “A very clear majority of athletes said that they think it’s not appropriate to demonstrate or express their views on the field of play, at the official ceremonies, or at the podium,” said IOC Athletes’ Commission chief Kirsty Coventry. “So our recommendation is to preserve the podium, field of play, and official ceremonies from any kind of protest or demonstrations or acts perceived as such,” Coventry added. Given the high profile nature of the IOC’s stance, it will be interesting to see just how many athletes attempt…
