Author(s): Dr. Tarsem Singh
The aim of this study was to compare the selected hematological variables between short and middle distance male runners. For this purpose, a sample of one hundred & twenty (N=120) male athletes of 18-25 years of age, which includes short distance runners (N1=60) and middle distance runners (N2=60), were selected as subjects, from All India Inter-University Athletics Championships. All the participants were informed about the aim and methodology of the study and they volunteered to participate in this study. All the participants were assessed for selected hematological variables i.e. Blood Glucose, Blood Urea, HDL Cholesterol and LDL Cholesterol. All the subjects were examined in Pathological Lab and blood sample were taken by the certified expert of the medical field. The independent samples t-test was applied to assess the differences between selected hematological variables between short and middle distance male runners. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Results revealed significant differences between short and middle distance male runners with regard to Blood Urea (7.457) and LDL Cholesterol (10.548) whereas insignificant differences have been found with regard to Blood Glucose and HDL Cholesterol.
