Comparative study of speed, agility and endurance running performance on hard and wet soil surface
Author(s): Patra SN
Besides Training effect and advantages of Anthropometric and somatotype characteristics, psychological ratio etc., the suitable surface phys an important role in executing highest possible performance in running event. The surfaces may be of different nature like soil, sandy, cender and synthetic etc. The availability of synthetic surface are not always feasible everywhere. In our country the soil surface is commonly used for conducting track & field events. The soil surface may be dry, wet and in between dry and wet (medium) in nature. Dry soil surface is known too high advantage for running performance where the frictional force and the rebound effect are fully utilized. On the country the wet soil surface are seemed to pull down running performance ability. Sometime due to adverse climate condition (Rain etc.) even the dry surface becomes wet. Now the question arises that up to what degree of wetness of soil surface may hampered the speed, Agility and endurance performance of the athletes. In order to investigate such queries, this study is behind undertaken. The performance of 50m (fifty mts) sprint, 4X30 ft shuttle run and 600 yrd Run on dry soil as well as wet soil surfaces (about 2 inch) of 25 students out of 50 (fifty) of the physical Education department N.B. S. Mahavidyalaya Bishnupur, Bankura, W.B. were recorded. The average age was 22 years ranging from 21 to 25 years. The result raveled significant difference on the performance of athletes in 50mt, Dash, 4 X 30ft shuttle run and 600 yrd run between dry and wet surface, in which it is noticed that performances in dry soil surface are found to be better than that at wet soil surface.
