Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to develop an analysis model of sport techniques based on artificial neural networks. In this study, the artificial neural network (ANN) computing techniques were applied to construct sport technique analysis model. Two basic problems, the technique parameter selection and the cause-effect mapping relationship establishment, were carefully investigated. This approach was first used with shot-putt, and from 155 trials, the Overall Parameter (OP) model and the Local Parameter (LP) model were constructed and evaluated. The predictive capacity of ANN model was demonstrated to be superior to the linear regression model.
