Abstract

The aim of this study was to measure and analyse the important kinematic variables in elite race walking. Research has shown that these variables include step length, cadence, positions of the body segments and joint angles. Eighty race walkers were videoed during competition at the 7th European Cup Race Walking in 2007. The 20K men were faster than 50K men due to higher cadences, while both male groups were faster than women due to longer steps. 20K men had higher cadences due to longer flight times. Athletes generally adhered to the two specific rules of race walking.
