Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of different running speed (3.5±O.3 and 4.9±O.2 m/si on vertical oscillation of the center of gravity and stride. Ten male elite running players served as subjects. A camera (60Hz) was to collect the parameters during running. From this research, the t-Test is used to analyze the parameters of the kinematics in different running speed. Results indicated that different running speed would not affect the vertical oscillation of human body center of gravity. In addition, a significant difference (p< .05) was found in the same speed of different step, but no significance was found in different running speed of the same step. The duration of the stance phase in lower speed for about 38.34% of the stride and the swing phase for 61.66%, in higher speed for about 32.11 % and 67.89%.
