The study was conducted to study the prediction of performance ability of 100 m sprinters in relation to selected motor fitness components. The study was conducted on 20 male 100 m sprinters aged between 14-18 years were randomly selected from selected from Govt. Co-ed Secondary Schools, Delhi. Keeping in mind the availability of equipment’s, acceptability to the subjects and legitimate time for collecting data, 50 yard run for speed, pull ups for muscular strength, bent knee sit ups form muscular endurance, standing broad jump for muscular power, 600-yard run/ walk test for cardio-respiratory endurance, sit and reach test for flexibility and 4×10 yards shuttle run for agility were selected as the motor fitness components for the study. These tests were selected as they are directly related to the performance ability of an athlete. The findings of the study showed that the selected motor fitness components viz speed, muscular strength, muscular endurance, muscular power, circulatory-respiratory endurance, flexibility and agility plays a vital role in predicting 100 m sprint performance i.e. the selected motor fitness components contributes 76.90% in predicting the 100 m sprint performance.Pages: 290-292 | 53 Views 6 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
