Thirty three athletes’ health (average age – 16.4±1.0 years) were studied. Anthropometry and analysis of body composition, and load test were performed by the Hardware-software complex "Zdorovye-Express" (Russia). Spirometry, electrocardiography, assessment of physical performance as per Harvard step test, and ultrasound scan of abdominal organs, blood biochemical indicators were also performed. It is established, examined athletes have medium level of harmony of development and high level of physical fitness. Harvard step test data showed that the vast majority of athletes have an adequate level of physical performance (66.6%) with good recovery ability, and 33.4% - a very poor level of physical performance with a normal or slow recovery period after exercise. Assessing the cardiac singular index, the condition of the cardiovascular system in 82.6% surveyed was considered as optimal and in 17.3% examined as moderately increased. Spirometer indicators confirmed to the age norms. Ultrasound data of the abdominal organs showed the presence of disturbances in 24% of cases, while these disorders were manifested by diffuse liver echogenicity changes in 7% of cases and pathology of the gallbladder in 17% cases. The revealed changes in the health status of athletes require further research.
