Author(s): Naresh Kumar Sahu, CD Agashe and Vivek Mishra
Effect of time pressure was analysed on shooting performance of female archers. This study was conducted on 50 female archers (average age 24.07 years) performing at national level tournaments. The shooting skills of these archers were assessed with the help of standard target for recurve archery. A target was set at 70 meters and selected archer shot 06 arrows in specified time limit of 04 minutes and 02 minutes respectively. In all each subjects shot twice on both the specified time limit. The paired comparison of shooting scores reveal that shooting accuracy of female archers was markedly superior while shooting in 04 minute time duration as compared to their shooting accuracy while shooting in 02 minute time duration. The results are discussion in the light of cognitive and motor skill aspect of time pressure.
