Analysis of Performance: 100 Meters, and Javelin

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Analysis of Performance The two events I have chosen to analyse are: * 100 Meters * Javelin 100 Meters Rules - * The Track: The end-to-end length of the oval track is 157.4 meters (172 yards). The width of the oval track is 73 meters (80 yards) wide. The distance around the curve is 36.5 meters (39.9 yards). * Lanes: Eight lanes usually make up the track, each 1.22 meters (4 feet) wide, numbered 1 to 8 on the track, inside out. Each athlete must stay inside his/her lane, if not followed then the athlete is disqualified. * False Start: A false start is called when one or more athletes take off before the race begins. A flare gun or a horn usually starts a race. In case of a false start, all athletes must return to their starting positions, and start again without regards to, if it was their fault or not. * Safety Precautions: There aren't many safety precautions in 100 meters because it isn't a long or contact sport. Despite that the athletes do wear appropriate clothing and trainers. Any type of jewellery must be removed. If can't be removed, then should be taped up with a special tape. Observation/Analysis - I am not a sprinter, but I always try to use the right technique to try and get the best time possible. Despite the fact that I am not sprinter I still have my strengths and weaknesses. My strength is my style of running and my reaction time. ...read more.

* Lesson 2: This lesson will focus on the starting position, reaction time and the starting technique. This will prepare them to have a strong start to the race. A strong start is very important to the race as it can determine many things. The student will be taught the right technique to start off the race, especially, the rise. This will be for the first 15 meters. * Lesson 3: This lesson will focus on 20 - 40 meters. After the first 15 meters they will be told to rise up to the running position and pick up speed. This is very important, as they need to pick up speed at the right time to have the right turnout of the race. * Lesson 4: This lesson will focus on the next 40 - 85 meters. At this time they should be running at full speed. They will learn how to run at the full speed and how to increase their full speed. * Lesson 5: This lesson will focus on 85 - 100 meters. In this lesson the students will learn how to dip their head to cut off some time from their final time. They will also learn how to finish the race off strongly with the right technique. After they learn all the aspects of the race they will be told them to put it all together and run their race. They will be made to practice the full race for a few times with a decent break in between. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Lesson 1: This lesson will focus on the rules and regulations of the sport. It will also include the safety precautions that need to be taken care of when playing the sport. * Lesson 2: This lesson will focus on teaching the student the basic grips of the javelin and get them used to holding the javelin and let them actually feel how it feels to hold a javelin. Then introduce them to the stationary position to start their run-up. * Lesson 3: This lesson will focus to introduce the run-up and the approach run and the withdrawal. Get them to measure their run-up o they have an idea of how they are going to take it. Then introduce them to the withdrawal where you take the hand holding the javelin behind your neck to introduce the power * Lesson 4: In this lesson we will introduce the crossover steps. S these steps are really important we will just cover them separately. It is very important to get the crossover steps right in order to get the power and the release accurate. They will be shown an example of how to do the crossover steps and then will be watched, copying it and practicing it. * Lesson 5: In this lesson we will introduce the bow position, strike and release. These are very crucial to get your throw right and accurate. Once they get the hang of this they will be told to put it all together and practice the whole drill of throwing the javelin. Once the whole drill has been practiced we will compare if they improved or not, from the start. ...read more.
