During analysis of the competitor's velocity in a run, strong assumptions are imposed upon the runner's tactic. It is assumed that the competitor uses his/her maximal propulsive force in short-distance events. The runner's velocity is assumed constant in long-distance races. None of these assumptions is satisfied during middle-distance races. In this study, the competitor's velocity, minimizing the time taken to cover the distance, is determined by means of extremization of linear integrals… CONTINUE READING
