    What is the impact of altitude on athletic or sporting performance?

    The next Olympic Games, 2012, are in London, more or less at sea level.  Would records be more likely be broken at a higher altitude?

    High altitude equals thinner air meaning athletes become more fatigued. So we are more likely to see records broken in London than were broken in Mexico in 1968
