How Can Sport Biomechanics Contribute to the Advance of World Record and Best Athletic Performance?
Li, Li
Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, v16 n3 p194-202 2012
Modern history has evidence that sport biomechanics provide valuable contribution in the pursuit of "faster, higher, and stronger." In this article, the contribution of sport biomechanics to the Olympic Games has been divided into three different categories: improve the physical capacity of the athletes, develop innovative techniques in a given sport, and help athletes interact with the environment more effectively. Those avenues will continue to be the paths that biomechanics contributes to the world of sports. Readers concerned about injury prevention should seek sources elsewhere, since it is not the focus of the authors in this article. (Contains 5 figures.)
