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.
Definition of BMI: BMI or Body Mass Index is a mathematical formula to access relative body weight. It is a ratio of height and weight, which determines approximately how much body fat a person has on their body. This can be used as a guide to weight levels and can establish whether a person is obese or not as it correlates highly with body fat.
