accompany our swim team in altitude training camp

From this Saturday, I will be going to follow our swimming team for a altitude training camp at Kunming, China. Kunming (1,850m) is a well-known altitude training place for disrance runners. As a sports physiologist, I will be collecting saliva samples to see how the swimmers are responding to this mild altitude in terms ofimmunological status.

Kunming is known as "spring city" because of its year-round warm temperate. The swimmers and thier coach went there last year, but for me this is the first time. I look forward to be there and will be coming back to Singapore on 31th.
