Relationship of Step Width with Sprinting Performance and Ground Reaction Forces

Ryu Nagahara, Mirai Mizutani, Akifumi Matsuo

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship of step width with sprinting performance and ground reaction forces in order to understand the sprinting mechanism and its relation to better sprinting performance.
