ANALYSIS OF CENTER OF GRAVITY OF THE HIGH JUMPER IN FOSBURY FLOP TECHNIQUES

Dr. V. A. Manickam, R. Femila

Abstract :

 The purpose of this study was to analysis of center of gravity of the high jumper in Fosbury Flop techniques.  The study was conducted only ten (N=10) high jumper who were randomly selected from various Colleges of Anna University, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India during 2015–2016. The age of the subjects were ranged between 18 to 25. The position of centre of gravity of the body is a major factor in determining the soundness of the stance that is advocated in any techniques in any sport in order to accomplish the desired objective most effectively, So centre of gravity is selected as dependent variable and it was calculated by a formula.  High jump performance was assessed through subjective rating techniques. Zero order correlation technique was used to find out the relationship between jumping performance and center of gravity. The results of the study showed there is a positive relationship between high jump performance and center of gravity of the jumper.
