Forty-two of 369 athletes were found to have a positive Occultest on the first urine sample voided following athletic competition. This positive reaction could be due to the presence of either myoglobin or haemoglobin. The Occultest was most often positive in competitors in the longer duration events such as the marathon. Twenty-six of these 42 specimens with a positive Occultest contained over 10 red cells per mm3. The urine samples were also examined for white cells, casts, bacteriuria and the concentration of urea, creatinine, electrolytes and protein. Proteinuria was a frequent finding and increased with the severity of the exertion.
