Abstract

Biomechanical data (curves and values) on skating technique are necessary for effective technique training. 1995-1997 kinematographic 3Danalyses of international top class athletes were made during uphill skating. A kinematic description of skating technique, as well as of technical reserves of top German athletes was obtained (Herrmann/Clauß, 1997). The specific dynamic reasons for the kinematic appearance were the subject of continued analyses. It was also aimed to collect information about measuring technical requirements of specific sensors and their attachment to the specific ski and pole. Corresponding results published so far are insufficient and affected by problems.
