HADZIC, Rasid et al. Anthropometrical Characteristics of Subjects in Predicting Technique Achievements of Basic Turn in Alpine Skiing. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.1, pp.232-240. ISSN 0717-9502.

This research analyzes the techniques involved in basic turn in relation to anthropometric characteristics of subjects. The aim of this study was to determine the difference in the technique of basic turn performance in relation to anthropometric characteristics of subjects. In a sample of 30 students, average age 22 years, male, measuring by 12 anthropometric measures and a situational-motor test was carried out. Alpine skiing technique was assessed through primary windings, the technical element of skiing which is present in the basic form of skiing. Based on these results, we can conclude that, the differences are established and boundaries are clearly defined in the level of adoption of the basic turn techniques between subsamples in relation to anthropometric characteristics.
