Author's abstract

The purpose of this project was to investigate the feasibility of using a single motion picture camera and simple methods of analysis to study the position and velocity of the javelin during lead foot plant preceding release, and based on the resulting data, provide useful performance feedback to coaches and athletes. The result of this study indicated that athletes should be placing more emphasis on where they release relative to the foul line. It appeared that the combination of qualitative and quantitative feedback furnished by this study could assist coaches in improving performance. Verf.-Referat
