Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine what characteristic race walking players have in their daily walking motion. The healthy four female race waking players and healthy four female university students were determined as subjects in this study. The 13m walking road was set. Each group conducted three Normal Walking trials (NW) and three Brisk Walking trials (BW). After that, the Race Walking group conducted three Race Walking trials (RW). The 3D motion analysis system (Frame Dias_ver.3.0 for windows) was used to calculate parameters. As to NW knee segment parameters, the maximum knee extension angle, range of motion and average knee angles of race walking group were significantly different from that of control group (p<0.05). The most important discovery of this study was that race walking player’s daily walking motion was influenced by their race walking characteristic.
