Abstract

Measurements of the velocity-time histories of sprinters and jumpers are valuable to coaches of these events, but the devices which have been developed to make such measurements are too expensive for most athletics programs. The purpose of this study was to develop and validate the use of a relatively inexpensive device for measuring the velocity-time history of straight away sprinters, long jumpers, triple jumpers, and pole vaulters
