Abstract

The sports biomechanics branch of Singapore Sports Council (SSC) was established in 1995. Since its inception, video analyses have been conducted in studies of sporting activities such as high jump, badminton, discus, hammer, javelin throw etc. Video recordings of the sporting activities are recorded in training sessions as well as during competitions (e.g. South East Asian Games, Singapore Open Track & Field Championship, Konica Cup). In 1998, a new biomechanics laboratory was developed to improve the facilitation of biomechanical studies. In this paper, three applications of video analysis are presented in the aspect of technique analysis, monitoring and improvement.
