An athlete needs more energy during the race and after. Since demand for the energy is high the breakdown of food must be speeded up. This requires more oxygen to be supplied. This is why an athlete not only breathes fast, but also take deep breathes and thus inhale more oxygen.Answered by sumati gayki, 01 Nov '10 08:43 am
