Abstract

The intention of this study was to verify if the used methodology and procedures are useful for coaching sprinters. Regardless the possibility to get automated equipment to analyze sprinters, it is possible to register the movement of the athletes in a simple form and to calculate the kinematic parameters to feedback the coach and for research purposes. These study results correspond to the preparation period within the annual macrocycle of a group of sprinters. In order to know the evolution and if there has been an improvement in the athletes performance it would be useful to be able to compare the results obtained in subsequent training sessions.
