Anthropometry and physiology play an important role in deciding the particular build of the body with various measurements of the segments of the body it has also its importance in the field of Canoeing and Kayaking game. Somewhat or altogether the body height length of various level and measurements of the varies body segments, pulse rate blood pressure, vital capacity and body composition have definite effects on the performance of these game players. The researcher in the present study made an effort to test this hunch to compare the difference between the various physiological and Anthropometrical measurements of Canoeing and Kayaking players. The present comparative study is related Canoeing and Kayaking players in relation to anthropometry and physiological variables. In the present study, 20 male Canoeing and 20 male Kayaking players selected through simple random technique from All India Inter University Canoeing & Kayaking players who participated in Inter University Tournament. To know the difference between Canoeing and Kayaking players in relation to anthropometry and physiological variables, Independent sample ‘t’ test was applied.
From the results, it may be concluded that there is a significant difference in Standing Height, Sitting Height, Body Weight & Leg Length of Canoeing and Kayaking players. But no significant difference found in Hand Length, Heart Rate, Systolic blood pressure, Diastolic blood pressure, Inspiratory Rate and Body Mass Index.
