Kinematic analysis of shot release of intercollegiate athletes

Author(s): Manesh Kumar Murali M and Dr. Dhinu MR

The aim of the study was to assess the performance and to identify some of the most relevant kinematic parameters defining the completion result in Glide shot-put technique. Two shot-put men athletes were analyzed in this study from intercollegiate athletics championships. The video recording was made with two stationary digital cameras (DSR-PD 170 DVCAM digital video camera, Sony Company Japan Ltd). Using systematic video recording procedure Kinematic parameters such as, height of release, angle of release, velocity of release, two frames Release velocity before (two frames), trunk angle at release, horizontal release distance, projected distance, Angle between transverse axes of shoulder and hip, Angular Velocity of Shoulder and Angular Velocity of Pelvis. The result of the study indicates the possibility of increasing the horizontal length of the shot put, which would lead to greater distance. The significance of this research is to obtain useful information for coaches and athletes, which will contribute to the further improvement of techniques. It is necessary to conduct further and more detailed studies of phases preceding the release, on which performance of the release phase and achievement of the best possible results may depend.
