Abstract

The purpose of this study was to provide descriptive and comparative data on kinematic data of giant swings on the parallel bars. Fourteen giants were studied. Results showed that, giants on the parallel bars exhibited larger range of motion in all joints as compared to giants in other apparatuses. No significant differences were found between (parallel bars) giants receiving larger or smaller deductions from qualified judges and this may be attributed to the (similar) skill level of the subjects.
