BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS OF RIGHT SIDEDSTRIDE IN JAVELIN DELIVERY
Keywords: delivery stride, technique structure, javelin, throwing
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to analyze the technique of javelin delivery using a rightsided stride. This study provided important data for more accurate analysis of the technique of javelin throwing with the right-sided delivery stride. The performance of 10 Chinese elite javelin throwers were filmed and then, some relevant parameters were analyzed. Based on these measurements, it was found that the right foot turns outward when contacting the ground, while the right knee is slightly flexed in the delivery stride. However the strength of the right leg depends on extension of right hip rather than that of right knee.
