SWIMMERS PEPPED UP BY WHIFF OF PURE OXYGEN (Oct, 1934)
SWIMMERS PEPPED UP BY WHIFF OF PURE OXYGEN
Athletes were transformed into super-swimmers in a recent test at Springfield College, Mass. Each of the swimmers was given two deep breaths of pure oxygen before he leaped into the water. Holding their breath until they had entered the tank, eleven of the seventeen youths taking part beat their own previous records in a 100-yard dash through the water.
