Shot trajectory parameters in gold medal stationary shot-putters during world-class competition

Frossard, Laurent A., Smeathers, James E., O'Riordan, Alison , & Goodman, Scott (2007) Shot trajectory parameters in gold medal stationary shot-putters during world-class competition. Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, 24(4), pp. 317-331.

Abstract

The parameters of the shot’s trajectory were reported for male and female gold medalists (classes F52, F53, F54 and F55) who competed at the 2000 Paralympic Games and the 2002 International Paralympic Committee (IPC) World Championships. The specific objective was to determine the magnitude of differences in these parameters across classes and genders. The release velocity of the shot increased with the performance and the classification for both males (8.30 m/s to 9.96 m/s) and females (4.58 m/s to 8.50 m/s). The measured angle of the shot’s trajectory at release also increased with the performance and the classification for both males (27.540 to 32.470) and females (9.020 to 34.520). The position of the shot from a fixed reference point at release revealed a similar trend for both males (2.01 m to 2.68 m) and females (1.16 m to 1.98 m), although it was weaker.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
