Abstract

This project consisted of collecting video records of the third hurdle clearance by elite high and low hurdlers while performing a maximal practice run at an Elite Hurdler Development Camp at the USOC training facility. Temporal and kinematic variables were calculated for their performances. The results were presented using an integrated data/video analysis format and were reviewed the following day with the athlete and the coach.
