Abstract

Anthropometric measurements were used to describe individuals or populations, while some measurements are used for correlation with performance in sport; others are used to investigate the public health and nutrition survey (Kipper, 1996), differences between local races and maturation at the young age of athletes (Kipper, 1998). Because of particularity of each sport event, the anthropometric parameters showed the specific results from different sport events. But there was no research to investigate the anthropometric data and features for female weightlifting, providing for proper material selection for young weightlifters. The purpose of this study was to investigate data of body measurements of women's weightlifters in Taiwan, and was to find the differences at the three age groups in female weightlifting.
