Abstract

Major studies on javelin throwing have focused more recently on kinematics studies, in two, and later, in three dimensions (3D), especially to analyse high performances (Bartlell & Best, 1988). However, there is a lack of literature reporting on kinetics data in javelin throwing event (Bartonietz, 2000). The main objective of this study is to develop a 3D kinematics and kinetics analysis of the final release phase of the javelin throw to explain javelin throwing performance.
