THE ANALYSIS OF THE JUMPING SMASH IN THE GAME OF BADMINTON
Keywords: jumping smash, statistical analysis, biomechanical analysis
AbstractAn investigation on the prevalence of jumping smash in a badminton game is carried out using a six video camera system. The data was collected during the Thomas/Uber Cup 2000 competition, which was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Thirteen male players in the single and double competitions were studied. The trials were digitized using the Peak Motus 2000 system. The result from the chi square analysis showed that majority of the jumps and landing occurred in only one foot. And from the correlation analysis, it was found that the angular velocity of the ankle at the maximum value prior to take off was strongly correlated with the center of mass vertical velocity (r =0.546, P =0.001).
