Abstract: Sport and athletes have always been subjects for art. In early Greek Culture, where sport was so fundamental to social life, artists often used athletes as subjects, creating sculpture and decorating vases with athletes in action. Throughout history, artists have been intrigued by the physical beauty of the athletic body and the visual beauty of the athletic performance. Sport became the object for intellectual analysis and investigation during this century. Sports participation and appreciation have become integral part of life. Competitive sports make tremendous demands on the physical conditioning, virtually, endurance and mental power of the participants. Only the finest can play to the best of their abilities. Each sport has its own pattern, muscle load, tempo and duration. Today the people of every country are more concerned with physical fitness than ever before as it has become the vital part of winning sports competition. ?Many sports are highly dependent upon the body?s ability to uptake and metabolism oxygen infects it is often the singular most important factor in deciding the quality of the performance?. Elite level (athletes) are generally chasing after only very small potential increases?.? Whereas newcomers to sports are able to significantly increase their VO2 max with training. By the time athletes have reached the elite level they are generally chasing after only very small potential increases each season. It seems that genetics? has a lot to do with ?ceiling?. Hypoxic training has the ability to literally raise this ceiling and provide improvements that would traditionally take years to obtain, if they ever could. The use of oxygen- depleted air for training, physical improvement and curing illness is not new. Esculapius, the ?blameless physician? of Greek myth and father of hygiene, was said to have built his healing temple on the mountains. Indians prepared their future chiefs in a hypoxic environment to make them stronger than their peers.
