Asthma surprises some athletes
They prescribed the 25-year-old a buterol inhaler last spring to aid her breathing by opening her constricted airways. It worked, and months later Catchings helped rally the U.S. women's basketball team to win Olympic gold in Athens.
I don't think I'm going to take my medical news from a place that can't even spell albuterol. You people are supposed to be reporters!

I'm going to have to get me some of that shit, though. Turns out I can't breathe without the soothing nicotine constantly coursing through my veins (as a stimulant, it dilates the bronchial tubes, the constriction of which is asthma).
