Author's abstract

Intense strain in athletics results in great stress on the skeleton. One of the consequences is a variety of damages caused by over-exertion and multiple traumas. In the athletic disciplines such as high jump and long jump, especially the ankle-joint is being affected. In order to evaluate the bone building cartilaginous and ligamentary nature of the ankle-joint after abnormal stress during intense jump training over a period of several years 50 male and female athletes, long and high jumpers, were examined clinically and radiographically. No statistically relevant damages from overstrain were found. Considering the arthromusculary balance and early diagnosis of possible injuries of the ankle-joint there is no medical evidence for contraindicating athletic training in jump disciplines.
