the context is :

el estado fisico de los atletas argentinas que tuvieron un adiestramiento penoso a bordo del vapor que influyo enormamente en el rendimiento de pruebas excepcionales como son las olimpicas

Does it mean that the Argentine athletes had difficulty training on board the ship? or am I way off
help please. Gracias

    A "vapor" is a steamship. It sounds a little antiquated to my ears, but it may be a perfectly common word in the Spanish of the Southern Cone.
