Author(s): Mahesh Yadav, Dr. Sanjit Sardar
The use of such measures helps to understand the impact of various anthropometric variables on performance of sportsman. The study was revealed to understand the correlation among anthropometric and sports performance. The purpose of this study was to find out anthropometric characteristics in high performer and low performer Long jumpers. 40 male Long jumpers of age 19 years were assessed for the present study. Out of which 20 were high performers and 20 were low performer, the data of athletes was collected at Athletics Summer Camp 2016 in Ranchi region. The Long jumpers having participation of at least two years were selected for the current study. All subjects were assessed for height, weight, girths, diameters, and skin fold thickness. The data was analyzed by Applying descriptive statistic i.e., mean, standard deviation & t-test to find out the significant differences of/in high & low Performer Long jumpers in tribal areas. The high performance Long jumpers had taller than low Performance Long jumpers for standing height, upper leg length, lower leg length. The low performer long jumpers possess significantly greater weight, skin fold measurements (p<0.05). In Body Girths and Skeletal Diameters no significant differences were found (p>0.05). It is concluded that in some of the parameters there were significant differences between high & low performer in Long jumpers and high performer athletes showed better in anthropometric measurement.
