Analysis of anthropometric, power, intermittent gait and performance related variables of sprinters
Author(s): Dr. K Sekar Babu
Abstract:
The purpose of the present study was to analyze the anthropometric, power, intermittent gait and performance related variables of sprinters. The data were collected from 20 sprinters from various SDAT centers and University of Madras summer camp held during the year 2016-2017. The age of the selected subjects ranged from 18 to 25 years. The present study consists of one criterion variable namely performance of sprinters in 100mts dash and twelve predictor variables namely height, arm girth, thigh girth, calf girth, arm length, leg length, explosive power, elastic power, stride length, stride rate, muscular strength and anaerobic power were selected for this study. They were measured by standard tests. The collected data were statistical analysis to determine the relationship between criterion and predictor variables by using the pearson’s product moment correlation. The step wise selection method of multiple regressions was used in this study to find out the contributing variables that have the highest correlation with the criterion variable. The variables were entered into the equation depending on the contribution of each predictor. In all cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed. The results indicate that, the anthropometric, power, intermittent gait and performance related variables are significantly related to sprinting performance.
