Track Coach Fired After Refusing To Make Athletes Wear Masks

New Hampshire high school track and field coach refuses to make athletes wear masks outdoors, gets the sack. For reference, here's what the World Health Organization says:

Q: Can people wear masks while exercising?
A: People should NOT wear masks when exercising as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably.

I don't know what the competition rules are, usually you want to train the way you'll compete, even if it kills you. New Hampshire does have a mask mandate for "public spaces, indoor and outdoor", although it has an exemption for "strenuous physical activity".
