Track and Field: Technique Through Dynamics.
Ecker, Tom
This book was designed to aid in applying the laws of dynamics to the sport of track and field, event by event. It begins by tracing the history of the discoveries of the laws of motion and the principles of dynamics, with explanations of commonly used terms derived from the vocabularies of the physical sciences. The principles and laws of dynamics are then applied (through discussion, photographic display, and coaching tips) to: sprinting; sprint relay racing; hurdling; high jumping; long jumping; triple jumping; pole vaulting; shot putting; discus throwing; javelin throwing; hammer throwing; and equipment selection. A bibliography is appended. (MM)
