View Full Version : sprinting instantaneous velocity

06-23-2008, 10:41 AM

In the athletic literature, it is quite common to report sprint times for 20, 30 or 40 m sprints at 5, 10, 20 m etc intervals, see the attached references for an example

However, is there any such data available on instantaneous speeds at the 5, 10 m etc for adult or chid athletes from any sports

I need such data to perform some calculations of the kinetic energy of collision in team sport athletes

Thanks in advance
