Stride length for tribal and non-tribal adolescents at different phases of sprinting


Debasish Mandal, Ashoke Kumar Biswas

The aim of the present study was to find out and compare stride length for tribal and non-tribal adolescents at different phases of 100 m sprinting. A total of 240 adolescent boys and girls within the age group of 10 to 15 yrs. were selected as subjects of this study. The subjects were divided into four equal sized group i.e., tribal boys, non-tribal boys, tribal girls and non-tribal girls. Each group was consisted of 60 subjects. The video graphic data was collected from 100 m performance of the subject. The average stride length for tribal boys was 219.94 (±16.84) cm in acceleration phase, where non-tribal boys was 222.20 (±15.91), the stride length in maximum speed phase for tribal boys was 313.59 (±32.06) cm, whereas non-tribal boys 320.78 (±28.50) cm and similarly the stride length in deceleration phase for tribal boys was 311.17 (±33.13) cm, whereas non-tribal boys was 316.14(±30.67) cm. In the same away the average stride length for tribal girls was 211.92 (±14.58) cm in acceleration phase, where non-tribal girls was 213.02 (±16.39), the stride length in maximum speed phase for tribal girls was 295.12 (±21.86) cm, whereas non-tribal girls 300.33 (±20.75) cm and similarly the stride length in deceleration phase for tribal girls was 286.55 (±25.39) cm, whereas non-tribal girls was 291.42 (±25.94) cm. In the both case of tribal and non-tribal adolescent boys’ and girls’ maximum stride length found at maximum speed phase of sprinting. The stride length in maximum speed phase increased from acceleration phase and it was further decreased in deceleration phase from maximum speed phase. The difference between tribal and non-tribal boys and girls at different phases of sprinting was not statistically significant at 0.05 levels.
