Thus, world-class athletes see a *larger* drop-off in performance at altitude. For instance, an average person might be able to fully saturate his blood up to 3,000 feet, and wouldn't see the ill-effects of altitude until he exceeded that level. But a world-class athlete, who struggles to fully saturate his blood under the best of circumstances, might see his performance decrease at *any* altitude above sea level.
You are insane. I think you need to learn about the Oxy-HB curve and the uploading of oxygen for anyone during exercise.
