Introduction

High altitude training has been utilised by elite sports persons since the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City to maximize sports training programs.  This method plays a part in the preparations of the Australian Olympic team for the Olympic Games and is now also being used in other sports such as the AFL.  However, high altitude training also has its critics and not all sports scientists agree on its merits.
