Comparative study of vital capacity between swimmers and long distance runners
Author(s): Sunil Kumar
For the purpose of study 20 Swimmers and 20 long distance runners were selected who had represented at National level. The subjects were females and the age group of subjects was ranging between 18-24 years. Data was collected on 20 swimmers and 20 long distance runners of Guru Nanak dev university Amritsar. All the subjects had represented their states at national level. The necessary data was collected through the administration of standardize instruments for the measurement of chosen variables. The data was collected at that time which was convenient to the subjects. The data was analyzed and compared with the help of statistical procedure in which mean, standard deviation, DF and ‘t’ test were used to compare the data. The statistical analysis of data shows that the vital capacity of long distance runners and swimmers was found statistically significant with regard to FVC(L), FEV(1), FEV1/FVC%, PEF (L/S), FEF 25-75 (L/S) where the swimmers had performed better than the long distance runners. If we look into the physiological status of both the categories both have almost similar profile and requirement as per the requirement of their games.
