Author(s): Dr. Maman Paul
The aim of this study was to investigate the difference of Haematological Parameters between Kayaking and Canoeing players. To obtain required data, the investigators had selected Eighteen (N=18), male college level Kayaking and Canoeing players between the age group of 18 - 25 years (Mean ± SD: age 23.16 ± 2.21 yrs, height 173.61 ± 4.79 ft, body mass 74.52 ± 4.24 kg) to act as subjects. They were divided into two groups; (i.e., n1=9; kayaking players, n2=9; Canoeing players). The purposive sampling technique was used to select the subjects. All the subjects, after having been informed about the objective and protocol of the study, gave their consent and volunteered to participate in this study. Unpaired t-test was employed for data analyses. The results revealed significant difference with regard to the sub-variables Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-Cholesterol. However, No significant differences were found on the sub-variables: Haemoglobin, Total Cholesterol (TC) High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-Cholesterol) and Triglycerides (TG).
