Author(s): Pawiter Singh
Physical fitness is the ability to carry out daily tasks with vigor and alertness; without undue fatigue. The purpose of this study was to compare the physical fitness of sprinters and long jumpers of Punjab state. The research was a descriptive comparative method. A total of 40 Players (20 sprinters and 20 long jumpers) were selected purposively from the 13 Secondary Schools of Punjab state. The criterion measures adopted for this study were Flexibility and muscular strength and Endurance. The data collection tools used in the study was sit & reach, Sit Ups. Data of Physical Fitness Components between sprinters and long jumpers was compared by using independent Sample‘t’ test. The level of significance was kept at 0.05 level of significant to test the hypothesis. The statistical analysis of physical components revealed that in the parameters such as sit-ups and sit and reach, there was significant difference between sprinters and long jumpers. Finally the researcher concluded that the long jumpers were more fit as compare to sprinters Players.
