The cartoon shows three ways in which athletes could be conditioned for the high altitude conditions of Mexico City where the 1968 Olympic Games were to be held by training in the Southern Alps. Leaping across a chasm would have an automatic eliminating efffect for the long jump if the athlete could not make it; a runner is sped up by being chased by an angry mountain goat and a tourist outside the Hermitage Hotel has been knocked out by a shot put.
