This paper develops a mathematical model, or formula, of the 100m sprint, which accurately describes the relationship between time elapsed and distance covered in the race. From this are derived formulae for velocity and acceleration. There are four constants in these formulae. They are constant throughout a particular performance of a particular runner, and they vary from performance to performance and runner to runner. The constants have important significance, and describe the maximum speed…

EVALUATION OF SPEED CHANGE IN 100 M SPRINT RUNNING
The purpose of this study was to propose a method to evaluate speed in 100m running with modified exponential equations. The speed changes in 100m sprint race of ninetysix sprinters (62 men and 34
MULTILINEAR REGRESSION MODEL OF SPRINT START
Aim of the researcher was to investigate the fundamentals of sprint start technique that contribute to higher levels of performance and recognized the major kinematic parameters of the sprint start
SPRINT RUNNERS' INTENTIONS DURING ACCELERATION AND CHANGES IN THEIR RUNNING SPEED
This study investigated the relationship between intention during acceleration and changes in running speed during a sprint. Changes in running speed over each entire sprint were measured using a
Pacing and stroke kinematics in 200-m kayak racing
TLDR
It is suggested that faster rates of acceleration and the ability to exhibit greater stroke lengths at relatively high stroke rates are determinants of 200-m kayak race performance.

There are tvo traditional sethods of analysinq behaviour in sprinting competition: apart from measuring stride-frequency and stride-lerqth, the mthod of speed curves is comn. The latter one is
