WADA's ethics and education committee has ruled that the chambers enhance performance and violate "the spirit of sport."
"The moral question is simple," Pound said. "It is one thing if you are prepared to go physically endure the rigors of training at altitude. But to be at sea level and climb into a tent and go to sleep pretending you're at altitude, and getting the same result, is artificial."
If they actually go through with this I will have lost any remaining respect I have for WADA.
I agree , whats next? No training at alt., no travelling on vacation above 1,000 ft. And no training in heavy shoes and sweats. No vitamins, its like "pretending" your on a good diet, is it not Pound?
