So – body size and gender likely have nothing to do with this issue – other than the by and large (no pun intended) average difference in males/ females trachea/airway sizes.

It might have been more appropraite to state that pollution affects the times of individuals with smaller airways and smaller lungs – which are more often present in female athletes than their male counterparts.
