Abstract

History and objective: Participation in sport competitions such as Olympiads may be associated with sport injuries Many factors including the anthropometric conditions may lead to the incidence of injury. The purpose of this research was to examine the association between the body mass index and the incident of sport injuries among the girl students participating in the sport Olympiads held in 2009 in the city of Yazd. Material and methods: In this research, the BMI of the injured and non injured girl athletes were compared. The data was collected using the injury recording form. Weight and height of the athletes as well as data related to the incidence of the injury were recorded. Statistical analysis was performed on data using the SPSS: pc version 16. Results: The results of the analysis showed that 37 injuries occurred. The result of the analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the BMI of the injured and non-injured athletes (p<0.05). in addition, the injured athletes had significantly higher mean value than the non-injured athletes (21.9 versus 19.5). Conclusion and discussion: The results of this study showed that anthropometric characteristics of the girl athletes such as bmi were a contributing factor for the incidence of injury. It was concluded that change in BMI by reducing weight to the desirable level may reduce the chance of injury in future competitions. More research and control over other variables are needed to reduce the chance of injuries further.
