Elite athletes regularly compete in environmental extremes with major championships hosted in some of the most inhospitable places on the planet. Both summer and winter Olympic Games have a reputation for choosing extreme environments, challenging athletes with heat, cold, altitude, and pollution, often in combination.

The rise of ultra-endurance events and charity challenges is now exposing non-elite athletes to extreme environments, often in the absence of any targeted acclimation or experience. This session will examine the preparation and performance of elite athletes, non-elite athletes and celebrities at the extremes.
