Author(s): Deepak, Dr. Inder Singh Pal
Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare distance-time of university level sprinters with an elite sprinter as well as to compare distance-speed and distance-acceleration curves of university level sprinters with an elite sprinter. Five university level sprinters selected from Amity University, Noida. For selecting the subjects the scholar conducted a test and the best five male sprinters whose 100mt performance was11.5 seconds and better were selected as subjects for the purpose of the study. The criterion measure chosen for the present study was the 100m performance recorded nearest to one-hundredth of a second. Single Group Experimental Design was used in the study, the performance of each Amity University sprinters was separately compared to that of the international level sprinter (Usain Bolt). The study indicated that the time action period in sprint performance over 100mts these are to be trained for better performance in sprint Reaction speed, Block Clearing Speed, Acceleration speed, maintenance speed and Finish Speed.
