Abstract

Fire sport is a discipline based on maximal movement velocity and optimal muscle-nerve co-ordination during the implementation of supporting movement activity. One of the most attractive disciplines is the 100m running event with various hurdles. The conclusive moment for passing a beam-hurdle is the way of starting towards the board. For analysis of this activity we used four video cameras and photocells to measure time parameters. According to efficiency we divided the monitored file (n=22, average age 24.37 years) into three groups. There is a trend, in order to maintain the velocity in the group of the best runners during the start, towards getting over the hurdle by executing the take off from the board is managed from a more forward position. In subjects with lowest efficiency there is a lowering of the ankle position during the runner’s contact with a rising board manifested via the braking rate.
