Why does an athlete breathe faster and deeper than usual after finishing the race?

Answer :

When an athlete runs, he or she losses a lot of energy. To get more energy, he/she breathes faster and deeper than usual for the faster breakdown of food to release energy because an athlete needs to supply more energy to make muscle cells to do work at a much higher rate than normal.
