Atletiek - naarheid
My seun 15 is 'n baie goeie kort afstand atleet 100 - 200m naar hy word baie naar na so 'n hardloop sessie, hy kla van slym wat opbou en dan gooi hy gereeld op - daarna gaan dit beter totdat hy weer gehardloop het. Wat kan die probleem wees? Enige raad sal opreg waardeer word

Hi Tilon

Perhaps he needs some basic lung function tests to see why there is an accumulation of mucus - check this with Cyberdoc. Many athletes throw up after a very high intensity session and the high intensity combined with the excess mucous probably doesn't help.
Is your son on a good training programme, so that he becomes accustomed to high intensity sessions? If not, perhaps phone the Sports Science Institute High Performance Centre on 021 659 5641 for advice.
