Kid from altitude moves to sea-level never to be heard from again, but if he can get a degree from Stanford I’d say it’s worth it.
I would expect his performances to drop by 2.3-3.8%.
Do you know how he did at the big national races at sea level last year?
The results say that living at altitude and racing at sea level tends to work out very well. However the results of those born and raised at altitude who excel in that environment and then move to sea-level tend to slow down 2.3-3.8% unless they lose a corresponding amount of weight. If you lose weight (Rainsberger) performance will stay the same or maybe even improve whereas if you have no weight to lose (Oakley) performance declines a couple percent.
That is complete BS and there is no way to realistically structure a study that would account for the countless variables at play.
Are you suggesting his times as a senior at Stanford will be down 2.3% to 3.8% from where he is now?
I’m suggesting you have poor reading comprehension and know nothing about the effects of altitude in relation to endurance athletes.
Show us the data or link to studies.
My mistake. Altitude has no effect on aerobic or anaerobic capacity. You happy now?
Exactly, we knew you were full of s#it.
it's in the business plan
RE: Breaking: Cole Sprout has committed to Stanford University10/30/2019 11:05AM - in reply to 100m
Take your blinders off. It depends on cost. All of these top recruits can't be full rides at Stanford. So if a kid could go to CU for free or Stanford for $150k, I would recommend CU. If both are free, then Stanford wins. It is like saying you shoul d buy the BMW for $100k over the Chevrolet for $25k. Yes the BMW is better but may not be a better deal.
Perhaps a better deal in the moment, but not necessarily a better deal over time. Degrees from Stanford and Colorado are not equal and do not have the same return on investment when evaluated over time. A Stanford degree most likely will provide a 1.x multiplier in salary per year when compared to a Colorado degree, which over time may negate the difference in sticker price. A Stanford degree will make it easier to get into a better graduate program in law or business, if that is a route to be taken, which has the potential to open up career opportunities and earning potentials that a Colorado degree will not.
I like the Colorado program much more than the Stanford program, and it would be cool to see what Sprout could do at Colorado under Wetmore and in that environment, but anyone with the option should be very hesitant to turn down a Stanford (or Princeton for that matter) opportunity for Colorado (or NAU and Oregon as well).
