Viewers are confused about the red spots on the body of the athletes. These red spots look like bruises, but there is something more about them.
The real reason behind the red marks on the bodies of the athletes is very surprising. There is a very definite and logical reason behind these spots. These red marks on the body are caused due to a new natural therapy, called as cupping. The therapy originated from the Chinese health medicine. This therapy is very popular among the athletes, as it increases blood circulation, and blood can be effectively transferred to those body parts, which go through rigorous exercising. This is why, spots are found at very strategic areas of the bodies.
