The Ethics of Altitude Simulation in Sport
Does the use of altitude simulation technology result in supra-physiological performance enhancement?
The performance benefits of altitude simulation are derived from the body's natural adaptive physiological processes associated with altitude acclimatization, as millions experience daily because of where they live, or travel.
Furthermore, unlike the use of blood doping and/or banned drugs that result in near instantaneous performance enhancement, the full effects of altitude training will not be apparent for many weeks of consistent regular exposure, corresponding to the natural adaptive processes attendant to altitude acclimatization.
