Author(s): Rajni Saini
Anthropometry is the science of obtaining systematic measurements of the body. Anthropometry first developed in the 19th century as a method employed by physical anthropologist for the study of human variation and evolution in both living and extinct populations. The emergence of a relatively new scientific specialization called Anthropometry provides a convenient frame work for the stud of human body. The present study aimed at comparative study of anthropometric variables between rhythmic and artistic women gymnasts. The sample of study comprised of 40women gymnastic players of Rohtak. Who were selected randomly? This study was delimited on women gymnastic players. Data was collected by using weight machine and still tape. Mean S.D. and ’t’ ratios were computed to study the difference between anthropometric variables. The findings of the study revealed that there is difference between rhythmic and artistic women gymnasts in anthropometric variables is linear measurement and circumference.
