Figure 3

Results of platelet aggregation after stimulation by adenosine-di-phosphat (ADP, left panel) and thrombin activating peptide 6 (TRAP, right panel) as assessed by multiple platelet function analysis before and after competition. Note, that significant increases between pre and post competition (* p < 0.05t) are found in marathon after ADP and TRAP activation and in triathlon after ADP activation only, indicating that platelet activation during prolonged activity is dependent on its running fraction.
