9 Medal Winning Olympians with Asthma

I read where about 8% of the athletes who compete in the Olympics suffer from asthma.

This may seem strange since most of the sports require high levels of fitness and endurance, and asthma causes shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing. That could make a work out hard.

The good news is the record books are filled with athletes who overcame asthma on their way to victory. Asthma didn’t stop them from achieving their goals and success. Don’t let it stop you.
