Charlie White Talks Battle with Asthma

Charlie White Talks Battle with Asthma

Charlie White and pro partner Sharna Burgess meet up at the dance studio to keep working on their semi-final dances in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (May 8).

The team will be performing a Foxtrot and Samba for next week’s show.

Recently speaking with People mag, Charlie opened up about his lifelong battle with asthma.

“I’ve always had to train harder than others to get the oxygen to my muscles because of my lung capacity,” Charlie shared. “I have to push myself past the point of being comfortable.”

He continued, “Being an athlete in a cold weather sport is really difficult to deal with the asthma. When you use the inhaler it has a little bit of synthetic adrenaline in it, and it kind of gets you going. But in a sport like figure skating where you want to be very under control, you have to find a great balance between being able to breathe enough and feeling like you’re yourself.”

FYI: Sharna is wearing Freddy Wr.Up pants.
