Abstract

A new method of investigation of athletes' motion takes into consideration the changes of the principal moments of inertia and their directions during the interval of the motion, because these characterise the efficiency and the neuro-muscular regulation of the motion. This paper presents a comparative analysis of two top swimmers (Swl=Rozsa, Sw2=Guttler) and points out the significant difference caused by their alternate motion pattern.
