To attain the purpose, Forty five (N=45) athletes who have participated Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi, Karnataka inter–collegiate athletic meet during the academic year 2017–2018 were selected randomly as subjects. Their age ranged from 18 to 21 years. The subjects were assigned at random into three groups of fifteen each (n=15).  Group–I underwent Long Distance Training (n=15), Group–II underwent Pranayama Practice (n=15) and Group–III acted as Control.  Among various athletic performance parameters Speed only selected and it was assessed through 50 meters run test. The Experimental groups underwent their respective training for 12 weeks duration. And the number of session was conformed into five days per week. All the subjects were tested prior to and immediately after the training for the selected variable. Data were collected and statistically analyzed using ANCOVA. Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to determine the significant difference between the paired means. In all the cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed.  The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference among all the Experimental groups’namelyLong Distance Training and Pranayama Practices.
