Speed during training and anthropometric measures in relation to race performance by male and female open-water ultra-endurance swimmers


Knechtle, B; Baumann, B; Knechtle, P; Rosemann, T (2010). Speed during training and anthropometric measures in relation to race performance by male and female open-water ultra-endurance swimmers. Perceptual and Motor Skills, 111(2):463-474.

Abstract

The relationship of anthropometric and training characteristics with race time were investigated in 39 male and 24 female open-water ultra-endurance swimmers in a 26.4 km open-water ultra-swim, using bi- and multivariate analyses. For the men, body height, Body Mass Index, length of arm, and swimming speed during training were related to race time in the bivariate analysis. For the women, swimming speed during training was associated with performance in the bivariate analysis. In the multivariate analysis for the men, Body Mass Index and swimming speed during training were related to race time.
