Decreases in body mass in ultra-endurance swimming: Case studies of cross-Channel swimmers.

Evidence has shown that decreases in total body mass in participants of ultra-endurance sports such as Ironman competitions are attributable to reductions in fat mass and skeletal muscle mass rather than the previously attributed dehydration (Knechtle, Knechtle, Rosemann and Oliver, 2010). This paper considers whether the same can be said for ultra-endurance swimming, such as that in cross-Channel swimming. The study tracks six swimmers, three male and three female and explores changes in hydration, skeletal muscle mass, fat mass and plasma urea in a non-impact sport where the body faces additional challenges such as temperature, and immersion in water, and determines total weight changes in so doing.
