Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze the technique of female shot put athletes. In this paper the ANN Analysis Model of sport Technique (ANNAMT) was applied to the data. It was shown that there were three possible ways to use this technique. The first was to reveal the general principles underlying an activity. The second method was to determine what differences exist between elite and other athletes and finally to achieve an individual technique diagnosis for direction in training. This study demonstrates the potential of the system that was developed previously for this purpose. It has the ability to standardize and program the technique analysis course, to some extent overcoming subjective decisions. This study suggests that ANNAMT could be used to establish sports training programs if the database was made available, compiled from performances of elite athletes.
