Oxygen chambers enhancing Athlete’s performance
This article and video looks at Novak Djokovic, the current number one tennis player in the world, who uses a pressurised oxygen chamber to “…help improve circulation, vision, reaction times, endurance and power, all while boosting red blood cell count”.
The use of a pressurised oxygen chamber to train the human body and build his red blood cell count was also used by magician David Blaine to break the world record of the longest time for holding his breath underwater.
This is a clear example of how science, health, sport, entertainment and technology are all used to enhance the human body with particular reference to athletes and entertainers. These articles illustrate that even though classifications of sport and entertainment may differ, they can stil be linked through commonalities in technological advancements.
