Abstract

The Austrian national outdoor-record for men’s long jump is 8.30 m. This record was set in 1988. Since then the national record has not been broken. Therefore the purpose of this study was to examine the various parameters affecting performance during the last support phase of the long jump. The current work is an attempt to help both the coaches and the athletes to improve performance.
