Abstract:

The anthropometric, physiological, psychological, and comparative differences among sprinters, middle-distance runners, and long-distance runners competing at the collegiate level in the Jammu region are examined in this study. "The 150 man sportsmen ranged in age from seventeen to twenty-six and were evaluated according to predetermined criteria including agility, speed, cardiorespiratory endurance, resting heart rate, duration of breath-holding, aggression, self-confidence, anxiety and weight. Speed, cardiorespiratory endurance, breath-holding time, self-confidence, anxiety, aggressiveness, weight, and leg length were shown to vary significantly among the groups". While long-distance runners dominated in terms of breath-holding time and cardiorespiratory endurance, sprinters demonstrated the fastest speeds. The tallest and heaviest runners were those who ran middle distances. Psychological tests showed that long-distance runners were the most anxious, while middle-distance runners were the most confident and tamest. The results show that various types of running demand varied mental and physical qualities, and that each kind of running calls for its own unique approach to training and mental health.
