-east) wind (‘Košava’), with episodes of wind speed reaching 12m/s, which caused a decrease of concentration of all ambient air pollutants measured by this institution ( 20 ). A statistically significant correlation exists between PM10 indoor and outdoor concentration for each school (p<0.0001), except for the school No. 9, ‘Radojka Lakic’ (p=0.207), although it is located in a strictly urban zone, close to the juncture of two streets with very busy traffic. The increase of outdoor PM10 concentration is significantly correlated to the increase of indoor PM10 values

Introduction This research was initiated in order to obtain an analytical expression providing a numerical quantification of the time effect of the influence of the wind and resistance of the medium on the final time of the 100 m run, although the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) is not officially recognizing such quantification yet. The interest for such mathematical models dates back to the beginning of the 20 th century. It begins with the pioneering works of Meade (1916) , Hill (1925, 1928) , after whom there comes Keller (1974

Introduction The research into the effects and contribution of the wind on the change of sprinter’s velocity in a 100 m run has resulted in numerous scientific publications over the last 40 years ( Dapena and Feltner, 1987 ; Davies, 1980 ; Linthorne, 1994 ; Mureika, 2003 ; Ward-Smith, 1999 ). This research was primarily directed towards the analysis and formulation of a mathematical model which would describe the influence of air resistance as a medium in the ground layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, and the effect of wind resistance in track sprinting

-distance track running events have also been widely investigated ( Hanon and Thomas, 2011 ; James et al., 2007 ). However, other possible determinant factors related to the 800 m performance such as strength, power, and sprinting capacities have received less scientific attention ( Hudgins et al., 2013 ). Research has shown a clear relationship between sprinting, strength and jumping performance in athletes. However, most of these investigations have focused their analysis on very short running distances (i.e., 50 and 100 m) ( Loturco et al., 2015a , 2015b ; Seitz et al

, elbow, wrist and hand) (Bonato et al., 2014; Eygendaal et al., 2007 ). Competitive players should train physical aspects like strength, speed, power, flexibility, local muscular endurance and muscular balance, which could potentially reduce the risk of injury ( Kovacs and Ellenbecker, 2011b ; Reid and Schneiker, 2008 ). Specifically, strength training has become vital in contemporary tennis as the velocity and power deployed in the game continue to increase ( Abrams et al., 2011; Cardoso Marques, 2005 ). Strength training programs involving different methods (e

dorsiflexed position (using TPF) is meaningful for the evaluation of the ability to change direction in athletes. As described above, the ability to change direction was significantly correlated with TPF, but not with TFS. These findings support our hypothesis that TPF is a better indicator of the ability to change direction than TFS. The dorsiflexion movement of the MPJ causes the plantar fascia to wind around the metatarsal heads, which is known as the “windlass mechanism” ( Kappel-Bargas et al., 1998 ). Toe muscular strength induces the maximal force because the truss

The experiment was performed during the European Ironman Championship held in Frankfurt (Germany) in 2012. All participants completed the Ironman race with times ranging from 09:08:15 (hh:mm:ss) to 11:40:10. Weather conditions during the race were as follows: average temperature: 21 o C (range 15-27), humidity: 63% (range 19-94), wind speed: 8 km/h, rain 1 mm
