Abstract

Introduction Within the framework of the International Athletics Foundation Scientific Project, software for the analysis of movements of man in the space was developed for obtaining special biomechanics information in track and field athletic events. The research started at the European Championships in 1978 in Prague. This international research was followed at the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow, the 1982 European Championships in Athens, the 1983 1st World Championships in Helsinki, the 1986 1st Junior World Championships in Athens and the 1987 2nd World Championships in Rome. This year it will continue at the Olympic Games in Seoul. Next year the plan is for the 2nd Indoor World Championships in Budapest.
