Author(s): Dr. Hitesh D Rathod

Abstract: Background: The crouching start is where when the gun shooter says "On your Mark" you stand in front of your line and you bend down and put your hands right under the line never above or you will get disqualified. Then when they say "Get set" You lean forward and put your butt in the air (not to much and not to little). Then once the gun shoots you take off. There are three types of sprint starts: Bunch or Bullet start, Medium start Elongated start. The Standing start in the races of longer distance 800m.
Materials and Methods: The purpose of the present study to find out the speed in crouch start and standing start among sprinters of R.T.M. Nagpur University in India. The sample for the present study consists of 32 Male sprinters of R.T.M. Nagpur University. The 50 M Run is used to assess the speed in Standing Start and Crouch Start. The Standing Start Run for 32 sprinters and on next day same 32 sprinters the Crouch Start with the starting blocks in medium start position is conducted by the Qualified Technical Officials in 50 M Run to assess the speed.
Results: The results of the study shows that in crouch start timing is faster than the standing start timing in 50 M Run.
Discussion & Conclusion: Sprint starts are very commonly used in athletics in sprints. The standing start is used by beginner athletes before they progress to the crouch start, while competitive athletes use the block start that allows them to apply force and thus aids in push off that can be transferred into horizontal velocity which can give the sprinters the speed compare to the standing start.
