Abstract

We present two original observations. First, we document the attainment of a critically high internal body temperature in a triathlete performing in an Ironman triathlon that we believe directly influenced his ability to run fast. Second, this athlete experienced an unusually rapid reduction in blood sodium (Na+) that preceded cramping, despite presenting signs of dehydration.
