An analytical study on timing of Kalyani university sprinters in 100m Race


Author(s): Dr. Sandip Sankar Ghosh and Sampa Bhowmick

Abstract: Objectives: The study was conducted to analyze the 100m sprint ability in time and other kinematic variables i.e., velocity and acceleration of the Kalyani University male and female sprinters. In the present study time analysis technique was used.
Methodology: 5 male sprinters and 3 female sprinters of Kalyani University from B.P.Ed and M.P.Ed course were selected as subject. Age was ranged from 22 to 25. In the present study the only measuring criterion was the time to cover different distance zone as segmented by the researcher purposefully. 100m. running distance were divided into ten (10) equal distance zones. The kinematical variables studied were Time, Zonal time, Zonal Velocity and Zonal Acceleration. The subject was advised to give his best possible effort. Before the race the opportunity of sufficient worm-up was given to the subject. At the end of each 10m segment two time keepers were posted both side of the lane. The times were taken by manual stop watch. The average of the two times of the two timekeepers for each zone was taken as time data. Two 100m trial were taken and the best timing was taken as final data. After one hour of first trial, the second trial was taken. From the collected data, Zonal time and Zonal Velocity were calculated by using appropriate formula.
Result: In case of male sprinter subject no.1 had better reaction time ability and acceleration ability and percentage of deceleration was little, that’s why he took least time to complete 100m sprint. In contrary subject no. 5 had poor reaction time ability, acceleration ability and deceleration ability, that’s why he took more time to complete 100m. In case of female subject no.1 had better speed ability, speed endurance and little percentage of deceleration so, she took least time to cover 100m. In contrast, subject no. 3 although had better reaction time ability but speed ability and deceleration ability was poor, that’s why she took more time to cover 100m.
