Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to analyze the aim technique of elite Chinese free pistol athletes. Pistol shooting in competition requires the athlete to complete 60 shots, consecutively and accurately. This provides a challenge for the marksmen, to maintain the high level of strength needed to perform the technical movements and under pressure. This paper presents a biomechanical study of the shooting techniques using the SELSPOT system. It was used to measure movements of the body-links and firearms in the aiming period in elite Chinese male pistol shooters.
