BREAKING: AP Puts Michael Phelps in the Wrong Kind of Chamber

USA Today, the Washington Post, and hundreds of media outlets this afternoon are running an Associated Press (AP) story that incorrectly identifies the medical device used by 16-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps as a hyperbaric chamber. The device, Phelps said, simulates an altitude of 8,000 feet. That would make it a hypo- not a hyperbaric chamber.
