High impact loading is known to prevent some of the age-related bone loss but its effects on the density distribution of cortical bone are relatively unknown. This study examined the effects of age and habitual sprinting on tibial and fibular mid-shaft bone traits (structural, cortical radial and polar bone mineral density distributions). Data from 67 habitual male sprinters aged 19–39 and 65–84 years, and 60 non-athletic men (referents) aged 21–39 and 65–80 years are reported. Tibial and… CONTINUE READING
