Turning at high speed along acute curves is crucial for athletic performance. One determinant of curved sprinting speed is the ground reaction force that can be created by the supporting limb; the moment generated at the ankle joint may influence such force generation. Body lean associated with curved sprints positions the ankle joints in extreme(More)
PURPOSE Football is the most popular high school sport; however, it has the highest rate of injury. Speculation has been prevalent that foot fixation due to high footwear traction contributes to injury risk. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to determine whether a relationship exists between the athlete's specific footwear traction (measured with(More)
Compared with running straight, when human runners sprint along a curve, the ability of the inside leg to generate force is compromised. This decreased force generation has been suggested to limit the overall performance of the runner. One theory for this force loss is that the large non-sagittal plane joint moments of the inside leg reach their operating(More)
The title compound, [AgCl(C(10)H(8)N(2))](n), was synthesized by reaction of silver(I) chloride with 4,4'-bipyridine (bipy) under ammoniacal conditions. The crystal structure reveals that the Ag and Cl atoms lie on twofold axes, while the bipy ligands also sit across twofold axes. The Ag(I) center is five-coordinated by three Cl atoms and two N atoms from(More)
The ultrasonic reaction of AgNO(3), 4,4'-bipyridine (bipy) and naphthalene-2,6-dicarboxylic acid (H(2)NDC) gives rise to the title compound, {[Ag(2)(C(10)H(8)N(2))(2)](C(12)H(6)O(4)).4H(2)O}(n). The NDC dianion is located on an inversion centre. The Ag(I) centre is coordinated in a linear manner by two N atoms from two bipy ligands. The crystal structure(More)
Date iii Abstract Sprinting along a curved path is regularly performed in athletics. Yet, the locomotion mechanisms behind curved sprinting performance are relatively unexplored. The current dissertation aimed to explore the limiting factors for curved sprinting performance from a biomechanical perspective. It was discovered that the available traction(More)
