Influence of Game Evolution and the Phase of Competition on Temporal Game Structure in High-Level Table Tennis Tournaments

Introduction Game temporal characteristics have been widely studied in racket sports such as tennis, badminton, squash and table tennis, which can be good references for specific training prescription ( Cabello Manrique and González-Badillo, 2003 ; Fernandez-Fernandez et al., 2007 ; Kovacs, 2006 ; Lees, 2003 ; Zagatto et al., 2010 ). Although some studies have investigated temporal variables in high-level table tennis matches ( Drianovski and Otcheva, 2002 ; Katsikadelis et al., 2007 ; Katsikadelis et al., 2010 ; Zagatto et al., 2016 ), these studies

Butterfly Sprint Swimming Technique, Analysis of Somatic and Spatial-Temporal Coordination Variables

strategy along with short intervals of cyclic non-propulsive gaps, rather than gliding strategies. An earlier study conducted by Boulesteix et al. (2003) suggested that limb coordination with reduced temporal gaps of gliding between arms and legs propulsive actions enabled the swimmer to dedicate more time to execute propulsion in the butterfly cycle, which meant greater continuity in these actions. This work was aimed at: analysing the influence of selected body features (body height – BH, total body length – TBL, upper and lower extremities length, body mass

Authenticity in the Perspective of Sport Tourism: Some Selected Examples

Abstract

Authenticity is usually understood as something similar to truth, or as a kind of ability of one “to be oneself”. However, for the philosophical approach, authenticity presents a more complex and complicated term. This conception has been followed in existentialism and fundamental ontology, where it has been examined and analyzed in depth (especially by Martin Heidegger). This paper deals with the search for some potentiality of the authentic modus of being through the practice of some forms of sport tourism. We selected and described four model types of sport tourism activities. Then, we designed and selected some factors of authenticity. The evaluation of authenticity within the selected activities according to the factors was applied in a two-round process of evaluation. The results of the process are explained and discussed. In conclusion, authenticity is presented as a concept that is not strongly influenced by outer settings, but is rather strongly connected with personal attunement and individual (or group) perception of the outer world.

Lethal Subarachnoid and Intracerebral Haemorrhage Associated with Temporal Arteritis. A Case Report

Abstract

Giant cell arteritis is a systemic inflammatory vasculitis, typically involving the superficial temporal arteries, but with possible ischemic and hemorrhagic cerebrovascular complications.

The case is reported of a patient with a clinical picture of giant cell arteritis, who had multiple occupational exposures to various infectious agents.

His initial favourable progress was followed by an atypical outcome. Despite immunosuppressive treatment, he developed fatal subarachnoid and intracerebral haemorrhages, possibly due to rupture of a microaneurysm of the posterior cerebral artery.

Temporal Activity in Particular Segments and Transitions in The Olympic Triathlon

The Olympic Triathlon is a combined endurance sport. It includes back-to-back swimming, cycling, running and the transition between events (T1 & T2). The aim of the current study was to analyse the possible relationship between the Lost Time T1 & T2 and overall performance. The results showed that the percentages of total time corresponding to each part of the race were: 16.2% for swimming, 0.74% for the swimming-cycling transition (T1), 53.07% for cycling, 0.47% for the cycling-running transition (T2) and 29.5% for running. The correlations between each part of the race and the final placing were: r=0.36 for swimming, r=0.25 for T1, r=0.62 for the cycling, r=0.33 for T2, and r=0.83 for the running. Also, values of r=0.34 & r=0.43 were obtained for Lost Time T1 and Lost Time T2, respectively. In conclusion, losing less time during T2 has been demonstrated to be related to obtaining a better final result.

Analysis of Successful Offensive Play Patterns by the Spanish Soccer Team

human eye could be to apply an empirical approach capable of uncovering the various structures and patterns that lie hidden within observable behaviors. T‐pattern analysis, which involves the detection of temporal patterns of behavior ( Magnusson, 2000 , 2016 ) has proven to be a useful tool for this purpose. T‐pattern detection has enormous potential in applied research and interdisciplinary areas such as sport ( Hristovski et al., 2017 ), where researchers are interested not only in quantifying performance indicators, such as goals, passes, or shots, but also in

Reaction to a Visual Stimulus: Anticipation with Steady and Dynamic Contractions

. Reaction time is the time interval between the stimulus onset and the onset of the response and reflects the speed at which the nervous system processes the stimulus and executes a response ( Schmidt and Lee, 2019 ). RT primarily consists of two components: premotor time and electromechanical delay (EMD) ( Schmidt and Lee, 2019 ). Premotor time is the temporal interval from stimulus onset to the onset of muscle activity ( Botwinick and Thompson, 1966 ; Schmidt and Lee, 2019 ) and represents the time it takes to identify the stimulus, process it, and generate a response

Post‐Activation Potentiation: Is there an Optimal Training Volume and Intensity to Induce Improvements in Vertical Jump Ability in Highly‐Trained Subjects?

important factors were carefully controlled in this study: the rest interval between HS and CMJ tests (4 min), the range of loads used to perform the CA (HS at 1RM, 3RM, 5RM, and 60% 1RM), and the mixed number of sets among the different conditions. Seitz et al. (2014) suggested that the temporal profile of PAP was related to relative strength levels, with stronger subjects (i.e., individuals able to squat at least twice their BM) achieving maximum PAP responses between the 3rd and 12th minute post‐CA. Regarding volume and intensity, a comprehensive meta
