Performance analysis of female sprinters in different curve radius

Author(s): Asish Biswas and Madhab Chandra Ghosh

Abstract: Running on a curve path is an integral part of track events. In humans, compared with straight running, maximum running speed is slower on unbanked curves and related to curve radius [4, 6]. The curved path of 400 m track is longer than the straight path. According to IAAF (2008) the Straight path length is 84.39 m and the Curved path length is 115.61 m. Therefore the curved running techniques are important for the running performance. The main purpose of the study was to determine the maximal sprinting performance of sprinters on curves of different track radii (18.79 m, 28.34 m and 36.50 m track radius). To conduct the present study a total of ten (10) female sprinters were selected from College and B.P.Ed, M.P.Ed courses and their age ranged between 20-26 years. For collecting data nine separate sprint performance tests were conducted in different curve radius. And these performance score of all the tests was considered as the data for the presented study. After collected the data the Mean, SD and ANOVA were computed for analysis of results. And there was no significant difference found in running performance among all lanes and tracks in different curve radius, except the 1st and 4th lane. On the basis of analysis of the present study results and previous studies it may be concluded that the sprinting performance was vary from lane to lane or track to track. And sprinting performance was improve by increases the curve radius but in a separate limit.
