yes.athletes have to be low on alcahol or they are fired ------------------------- In general, people with low body fat have less ability to absorb alcohol as they drink. It stays 'active' in their blood more than in most people. Also, being in peak physical condition, their metabolism is higher than most peoples, making the effects of alcohol quicker to start affecting them.

How does tolerance to alcohol affect BAC?

Tolerance to alcohol does not affect immediate measures of BAC. A tolerant person can have a much higher BAC without feeling the effects but according to the law they are more drunk than a person with a lower amount that is highly affected by alcohol. To be more specific, high tolerance essentially affects the level of habituation a person's neurons have adapted to alcohol and reduces the number of receptors that they have for alcohol. As BAC is a measure of immediate blood alcohol levels, this is not affected by levels of receptors in the brain.
