Abstract

The maximum speed attained by the athlete in broad jump competition is an important objective for the approach phase of the jump. Although the technique of male broad jump athletes has been studied, very little research has focussed on the performance of female high performance broad jump athletes. The purpose of this study was to analyze the characteristics of movement kinematics in three males and three females broad jumpers. A comparison of performance between the males and females was made so as to provide the information for coaches and athletes to improve performance.
