Kinematics analysis of starting block phase among sprinters
Author(s): M Pon Pandi
The purpose of the study was to analyse the kinematic of block phase in 100 meter sprinters. To facilitate this study 3 national level athletes were selected as subjects from Kerala state sports council. The age of the subjects were ranged from 18 to 28 years. The study was determined to select the biomechanical variables. The study was formulated as a survey design with 3 subjects. Each athletes performed three block starting performance with maximum level that were video recorded with on camera positioned 5 meter perpendicular to the staring block. Data were collected by analyzing the video recording of each jump. Data processing was performed using the KINOVEA motion analysis software. Collected data were analysed with Mean and Percentile value. The study found that mean values different kinematics parameters such as hip peak angle, hip peak time, knee peak angle, knee peak time, ankle peak angle and ankle peak time involving in 100 m sprint starting block phase.
