Pecularities of height, age, competitive experience of players in modern men's handball
Indices of competition model of the elite athletes in the highest rank are the most precise criteria determining tendencies of sport performance (Franks & McGarry, 1996). Peculiarities of interaction between indices of handball players age, competitive experience, height and sports results in the European championships2004&2006 (EC), Olympic Games2004 (OG), World championship2005 (WC) were carried out. Indices of 1064 subjects and 225 matches were analysed using mathematical statistics methods. The highest players were participants in EC2006 (191.5±6.7), lowermost in WC2005 (189.2±3.6). The indices of hight had the greatest influence to win in WC2005 (r2=0.4156) but not in EC2006 (r2=0.0021). The oldest participants took part in OG2004 (28.5±4.6) and EC2004 (28.3±3.9), the youngest in WC2005 (26.3±3.9). The greatest influence of age was found in OG2004 (r2=0.563) but not in EC2006 (r2=0.0873). Participants of OG2004 (93±9) had the greatest experience, the least experience had participants of WC2005 (69±62). The greatest influence of experience was found in OG2004 (r2=0.3032), the lowest in EC2006 (r2=0.0869). Research findings allow to assert that the possibilities of winning the match are not determined by separate indices but rather by the whole complex of indices characteristic of the teams performance in general and individual fitness of players (Skarbalius, 2002, 2006).
