Abstract

Optimal release variables (angle, velocity and height) in the shot put have been studied extensively. The importance of selected temporal, kinetic and kinematic variables in the glide technique have been reviewed comprehensively (Zatsiorsky, 1990: In Techniques in Athletics, edited G.P. Bruggeman and J.K. Ruhl. Koln: Deutsche Sporthochschule); however, there is very little data on the rotational shot put technique. The aim of this study was to establish whether there are any significant relationships between distance thrown and selected temporal and kinematic components of the rotational shot put technique.
