I keep hearing the announcers on NBC say that the athletes are being affected by the altitude in Torino but they have failed to mention what the altitude is. What is the altitude in Torino?

That's all? The way the announcers were makng an issue of it I thought it was much higher. Time for me to get a geography lesson for the area and quit listening to NBC.  Smile

Well, if their accuracy in aviation-related information is any indication....

It's probably higher in the mountains. However, most olympic caliber athletes are going to train in higher altitudes because it causes your red blood cell count to increase to cope with the lack of oxygen. I'm not familiar with the geography of that region, but if the mountains are coastal, and not very high (like 5000 feet) most athletes, particularly skiers, should feel like they have superchargers attached to their lungs.

Although Turin may not be located at a particularly high-altitude, the Alps to the North rise very quickly to several thousand feet AMSL, as these photos show...

The different sports in Torino are spread across 100 miles. Several of the events are VERY high in the Alps, higher than most people are accustomed to training.
