3.To identify sports where each component would be particularly useful.
" The ability to exercise the entire body for
long periods of time"
This describes the efficiency of the heart, lungs and blood vessels to deliver oxygen to the working muscles so that prolonged physical activity can take place.

A strong heart and blood vessels supply the muscles with as much oxygen as possible to help create energy for exercise.
