Jetlag im Sport

  • Daniel Erlacher
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

In diesem Kapitel sollen ganz allgemein Flugreisen im Sport und der Jetlag im speziellen betrachtet werden. Flugreisen sind für viele Athletinnen und Athleten im Hochleistungssport ein unvermeidbarer Stress, egal ob es sich um regelmäßige Kurzstrecken oder gelegentliche Fernreisen handelt. Dabei muss zwischen der Reisemüdigkeit und dem Jetlag unterschieden werden. Die negativen Auswirkungen von Kurz- und Mittelstreckenflügen werden dabei stärker von den Symptomen der Reisemüdigkeit hervorgerufen und weniger durch Jetlag. Bei Langstreckenflügen nehmen die Symptom des Jetlag mit der Anzahl der überflogenen Zeitzonen zu. Dementsprechend sind Handlungsempfehlungen im Umgang mit Flugreisen und Jetlag ein wichtiger Erfolgsfaktor im Sport.
