I am currently looking into the kinematics of a long jump. I am interested
in finding information/journals/studies regarding this area. I have
analysed a number of subjects jumping to determine the effectiveness of
their jumps. I am particularly interested in ground reaction forces, take
off phase, run up velocity, angle of projection of jumper, any features of
the jump that give a positive contribution to the length of the jump,
improvements that could be made by the jumper, technique of elite jumpers
and investigating injury mechanisms in jumping.

If anyone has any information that may benefit my studies could you please
send it ASAP. THANKS.BYE NOW!
