Livestreamad disputation | Athletic Sprint Start Biomechanics: Investigations into the relationships between three dimensional starting technique, first step width and performance | Paul Sandamas, GIH, fredagen den 11 juni...
When observing an athletic sprint start using starting blocks, it is common to see high performing athletes twist their lower bodies followed by their legs flailing out sideways. Despite limited scientific information on 3D pelvis and leg motion in sprinting, some coaches believe that performance would improve if the athletes tried to curtail limb motion outside the sagittal plane. This thesis has tried to shed light on this movement pattern and to see how manipulating 1st step width affects force production and performance.
