Abstract

INTRODUCTION: To a large extent, the sprint start in the 500-m short-track speed-skating event determines a successful performance. Therefore, it is anticipated that a study on the action in the sprint start would help to improve the outcome of the start. The aim of this study was to perform a kinematic analysis on some important factors that are related to a successful sprint start.
