How is the athlete's body producing 'ENERGY'
in order to be able to perform the long jump?
Does the long jumper need 'SKILL' or 'ABILITY' in order
to be able to perform?
Why does the athlete's body fly through the
air in that particular motion?
What barriers do female athletes face when trying to become elite performers?
Something that can be learned
Something can be improved through practice
Example of skill: 'hang technique'
You are born with abilities
They underpin skillful performance
Example of ability: 'coordination'
Energy for the high intensity, short duration exercise is produced by:
Breakdown of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP)
Phospocreatine (PC) Breakdown to enable re-creation of ATP
The body when in flight is like any other object in sport and
is known as a 'PROJECTILE'
It follows a 'PARABOLIC' motion of flight due to effects of forces.
What factors will effect how far a projectile flies?
Women in sport suffer against different barriers which make achieving top level performance very difficult.
These barriers include:
Sport being male dominated activity
Women receive less media coverage than men
Negative experiences when taking part in PE at school
Research Task for the Summer
