Washington: Asthma and airway hyper-responsiveness are the most common chronic conditions among Olympic athletes, and could be related to intense training, according to a study by the University of Western Australia.The results were based on data from the last five Olympic games.In summer and winter sports there is widespread suffering from asthma and airway hyper-responsiveness (AHR) among athletes who take part in endurance sports. Its relatively late onset in many older athletes suggests to the experts that the years of intense training could be one of the causes.“Inhaling polluted or cold air is considered an important factor which might explain the cause in some sports, but not in all,” explained Kenneth D. Fitch, researcher at the University of Western Australia.
