Comparative study of anthropometric indices among swimmers and non-swimmers
Author(s): C Abhaya Prakash, Dr. Gerald Santhosh D’Souza
Abstract: The close relationship between performance and the body's anthropometric characteristics has been known since the end of the last century, but it was not until the fifties that research in the area intensified. 80 people were screened for our study and 30 people were selected as subjects. Some of the measurements were done in our lab while most were done at swimming pool, as most of the subjects were busy in the working hours of our department. The mean body surface area in sq.m in swimmers was 1.69+0.12 and in controls was 1.71+0.11. There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups.
