Resumen

ATIKOVIC, A. Anthropometric Characteristics of Olympic Female and Male Artistic Gymnasts from 1996 to 2016. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.4, pp.990-996. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022020000400990.

Success in artistic gymnastics certainly depends on the morphological characteristics of the athletes, some of which are basic body height and weight. The aim of this study is to determine whether there is a statistically significant difference in body height and weight between the male and female participants on the Olympic Games from 1996 to 2016. The following variables were chosen: body weight (kg), body height (cm). The results did show significant differences between women's artistic gymnastics in body weight and height over a 20-year period. In men's artistic gymnastics we didn't find the difference. This research is important in setting comparative parameters in the selection process and sport specialization regarding morphological characteristics according to different events of gymnasts at the elite level.

Palabras clave : Artistic Gymnastics; Olympic Games; Elite Athletes; Anthropological Characteristic.
