Eliakim, A, Ben Zaken, S, Meckel, Y, Yamin, C, Dror, N, and Nemet, D. Rhabdomyolysis after out-of-water exercise in an elite adolescent water polo player carrying the IL-6 174C allele single-nucleotide polymorphism. J Strength Cond Res 29(12): 3506–3508, 2015—We present an adolescent elite water polo player who despite a genetic predisposition to develop exercise-induced severe muscle damage due to carrying the IL-6 174C allele single-nucleotide polymorphism, developed acute rhabdomyolysis only after a vigorous out-of-water training, suggesting that water polo training may be more suitable for genetically predisposed athletes.
