Introduction

Project Title: Is there a correlation between 100m times and shot-put distances compared to BMI (Body Mass Index)?

I plan to investigate the following:

1. Whether BMI ranking affects performance in 100m and shot put.

I predict that people with a higher BMI, will perform better than people with low BMI in shot put, however I also predict that people with a low BMI will be perform better in 100m than shot put compared to people with a high BMI.

2. Is there a similar correlation between females and males in 100m and shot put performance? If so any trends

I predict that boys will have an overall better performance at both events compared to females.
