Is there a meaningful relationship between physical and technical performance?: a study on international women's team handball matches
MetadataShow full item record
Team Handball is one of the team sports with the highest speed of play and is characterized by repeated jumps, sprints, changes of direction, body contacts and specific technical movement patterns in response to different tactical situations in the game. The aim of this study is to investigate if there is a relationship between physical and technical performances in international women’s team handball matches. Earlier studies report a decrease in physical intensity measured by Player LoadTM (PL) and high intensity events (HIE), during the game, however there are no studies that indicate if this is associated with technical performance. Physical data (PL and HIE) from nine Golden League matches on 15 different female outfield players were analysed, each represented 2-9 times, resulting in a total of 70 match data samples. There was also conducted video analysis using a grading system to extract the technical variables involvements (INV) and points. The INV are a summation of every time points are given to a player, independent of point sum. Points are the sum of all points given combined.
