Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Effective running up is known as an important factor for successful completion of horse vaulting. Some examined the relationship of mechanical parameters of pre-flight and/or post-flight with gymnasts’ performance. However, running up kinematics and its running velocity have been neglected. So the purposes of present study were 1) to compare the kinematics of running up during horse vaulting with that of sprint running, and 2) to investigated the relationships of running velocities and scores of horse vaulting.
