DIFFERENCES IN PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS IN SPRINT HURDLES BETWEEN HURDLERS AND DECATHLETES IN ASIAN GAMES 2006
Keywords:technique, competition analysis, kinematics
AbstractHurdling technique may not be the main factor to explain the differences in race performance between world-class hurdlers (Brüggemann et al. 1999). However, it is likely that technical factors play a more important role in hurdling performance in less skilled athletes. Therefore, we examined the differences in hurdling performance between the specialized (hurdlers, HRDS) and non-specialized (decathletes, DECS) athletes.
