Kinematic analysis of hurdle clearance in steeple chaseAuthor(s):
Verma Sanjeev, Sahu Manoj KumarAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to see the correlation of selected angular and linear kinematic variables and performance of hurdle clearance in steeplechase. 10 students (boys) on the basis of purposive sampling technique of age 26 ± 2 years were selected as a subject from Laxmibai National University of Physical Education, Gwalior, those who had been undergoing training. Time taken by the subject to clear the hurdle was considered as a performance, and sequential photography was done at sagittal plane with the help of Canon- EOS T3 motor driven camera. From the photographic sequence, the stick figures were prepared by using joint point method, and segmentation method was used to measure the selected linear kinematic variable at selected moments. To see the correlation between performance of hurdle clearance and selected angular and linear kinematic variables at selected moments, the pearson’s correlation coefficient was employed and found significant correlation in the angle of hip during take-off phase at 0.05 level of significance.Pages: 10-12 | 1166 Views 30 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
