Children are fit as professional endurance athletes, study reveals

While a quick run would draw many adults, children seem to have infinite pockets of energy.

Now, a new study suggests that children can be really fit as professional endurance athletes.

Researchers at La Université Clermont Auvergne discovered that children not only have muscles that are resistant to fatigue, but also recover quickly from high-intensity exercise.

Dr. Sébastien Ratel, who led the study, said: "During many physical tasks, children may get tired before adults because they have limited cardiovascular capacity, tend to adopt less efficient movement patterns and need to take more steps to move a certain distance.
