Because of its height tent, there is a good chance that Mo Farah will not stay in the Olympic Village during the Olympic Games. The British long-distance medal hopes to use his height tent until the last day before the competition. But in the Olympic village there is probably no room for the 42 kg heavy object and moreover the device would make too much noise. "For Mo, it's ideal to stay in his tent until the last minute," said physiologist Steve Ingham, who led research at the British Sports Institute into the effect of altitude training.
By using a specific marker, in the form of carbon monoxide, they have been able to measure the response of different athletes to the stay at altitude and to adapt it to the specific needs of individual athletes.
