Under the influence of physical loads on the body of athletes
there occurs an adaptation in accordance with the thrust of the training
process. A particular focus of the training process changes and specializes as
the morphology and function of the body of an athlete changes. There are
peculiarities in the adaptation of an athlete's cardio-vascular system to the
specific type of sport activity. Taking into account these peculiarities, one
can estimate the intracardiac sizes of the athletes of various sports
specializations. The quantitative values of the echocardiographic parameters in
athletes of different kinds, establishes the presence of changes in the
geometry of the left ventricle of the heart of athletes with various
orientations of the training process.
