Author(s): Baljit Kaur and Dr. Jasmel Kaur
Performance in sports is not only related to physical strength and skill; rather physiological aspects are deeply related to it. Women artistic gymnastics consist of variety of skills on various apparatus. This study aimed to find out the relationship of selected physiological parameters of female gymnasts with their performance. For this purpose the researcher selected 75 artistic female gymnasts, age ranges between 18-25 years, who participated in All India Inter-University gymnastic championship. The official results of the All India Inter University Gymnastics Championship were considered as performance of the gymnasts. Purposive sampling technique was applied to select the sample. Physiological parameters i.e. Blood Pressure (systolic and diastolic) at resting was selected for this study. To find out the relationship of resting blood pressure with performance, Zero Order Product Moment method of correlation was used. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The results showed that there is no significant correlation found between blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) and performance of female gymnasts.
