An association of selected anthropometric and physical fitness variables with the performance of the javelin throwers


Kunvar Singh

Purpose of the present study is to find out the relationship of selected anthropometric variables (height, weight, arm length, arm girth) and physical fitness variables (Speed, leg strength, back strength) with the performance of the Javelin throwers. Total 30 samples selected from Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur. Age was ranging between18-28 years. Keeping the feasibility criterion in mind height, weight, arm length and arm girth selected as anthropometric variables, speed, leg strength and back strength selected as physical fitness variables. Performance of the Javelin throwers was selected as dependent variables. To know the significant relationship between selected anthropometric and physical fitness variables with the performance of the Javelin throwers, descriptive statistics and Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation was used. All the data related to present study was analyzed with the help of 16.0 version software and the level of significant was set at .05 level of confidence. On the basis of the findings of the study it may conclude that Significant relationship was found between performance of javelin throwers with selected anthropometric variables -height (r=.807, p>0.05), weight (r=.845, p>0.05), arm length (r=.745, p>0.05) and arm girth (r=.897, p>0.05). Significant relationship was found between performance of javelin throwers with selected physical fitness variable- speed (r=-.877, p>0.05), (r=.823, p>0.05), (r=.882, p>0.05.
