I’ve written in the past on SIPE – Swimming-Induced Pulmonary Edema (see our link here) and have been following the studies and statistics of SIPE ever since. It is one of our most popular posts with many writing in about having suffered this during an open water swim. Today this article came across my desk and I thought it worth posting for all of you who love swimming in the open water.
Endurance athletes push their bodies to the limits, and there are many things to worry about when training or competing. Is SIPE one of them?
