Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Long-term athletic training is associated with changes in cardiac morphology, commonly described as "athlete's heart." Although numerous studies have investigated the effects of training on cardiac dimensions, most are limited to male Caucasian athletes, and few data are available regarding the effect of long-term exercise training on the woman's heart. This article reviews the athlete's heart in relation to gender and race.
