Abstract

Thus the aim of this study was to determine the comparative analysis of motor fitness components among Sprinters, Throwers and Jumpers. To obtain data, the investigators had selected Sixty (N=60), Male Inter-College and Inter-University Level (Sprinters, Throwers and Jumpers) between the age group of 18-25 years (Mean SD: age 20.6832.02 years, height 5.744926.3 m, body mass 76.40014.3 kg) were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into three groups: Group-A: Sprinters (n1=60); Inter-College (n1a=30) and Inter-University (n1b=30); Group-B: Throwers (n2=60); Inter-College (n2a=30) and Inter-University (n2b=30); Group-C: Jumpers (n3=60); Inter-College (n3a=30) and Inter-University (n3b=30). One way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) to find out the intra-group differences and where the F ratio found significant then Post-hoc test Least Significant Difference (LSD) was applied to find out the direction and degree of differences. To test the hypothesis, the level of significance was set at 0.05. To conclude, it is significant to mention in relation to Motor Fitness Components that insignificant differences occur among Inter-College Sprinters, Thrower and Jumpers on the sub variable Explosive Strength. However, the significant differences occur among Inter-College Sprinters, Throwers and Jumpers on the sub variable Agility, Balance, Speed and Flexibility. To conclude, it is significant to mention in relation to Motor Fitness Components that insignificant differences occur among Inter-University Sprinters, Thrower and Jumpers on the sub variable Agility and Explosive Strength. However, the significant differences occur among Inter-University Sprinters, Throwers and Jumpers on the sub variable Balance, Speed and Flexibility.
