Assessment of triple jump techniques employed by senior men athletes


Dr. Manesh Kumar Murali M and Dr. Sakeer Hussain VP


The purpose of the study was to present the magnitude of the kinematic parameters of the triple jump observed in Kerala state senior athletes regarding the technique and effect of the performances. Three male triple jumps were selected for the study. Three men (n = 3), top-level senior level triple jumpers (age: 23±5.5years; body height: 1.75 m±0.05; body mass: 68.71 kg±5.2, average standard deviation, respectively). They were selected for the study in Kerala state senior athletics team selection for Senior Nation Athletics Championships 2015. Section trails held in the Maharajas college ground, Kochi. Kinematic variables selected for the studies are Officially Measured Distance, Real Distance, Loss of Take-off, Hop, Step, Jump and Loss of Landing, Linear Velocity, Flight and Support times during the triple jump, Angle of leading leg knee joint from peak height to descending phase in hop, step and jump, Trunk angle between 2 frames before and after at peak height of hop, step and jump. All trial Jumps of the participants were recorded using two cameras. The recordings were acquired with two stationary Sony DSR-PD 170 DVCAM digital video camera (Sony Company Japan Ltd), operating with a sampling frequency of 59.94fps and a shutter speed of to 1/10000. The first camera was positioned on1.2 m high fixed tripod in the stands at a distance of about 11 m from the middle of the runway and parallel to the side of run way. The second camera was placed on the stands at the 10 m away from the end of the landing area. The data analysis was done using Quintic Biomechanics version 26, Quintic Consultancy Ltd. England. Result of the study help us to analysis the skill efficiently and the skill correction based on the analysis, coaches and teachers use kinematics analysis to determine which action may improve performance of jumpers, it helps to identify mistakes and make the athlete aware bout those and rectify it, it helps the coaches and teachers to assess the kinematics defaults of particular skill during execution and it generates multiple information for coach during rectification process of an athlete.
