previous study involving 483 recreational and competitive runners reported a preferred running velocity ranging from 2.2 to 3.3 m·s −1 . 42 The attack angle of the lower limb represents the angle that is subtended from a virtual limb (typically represented as a line from the COM to the COP) to the

lower limb movements and forces. Similarly, a study on soccer players concluded that cutting in response to virtual defensive players triggered distinct lower limb postures and knee moments. 38 In basketball games, the cutting maneuver is also often accompanied by ball dribbling. Cutting with dribbling

298 m. The maximal difference in elevation was 29 m with a total climb of 55 m per lap. The time each skier spent in a section was calculated based on virtual split times. Section speed was calculated by dividing the length of a section by the section time of the skiers. The Gar-920XT has recently

). Golfers were asked to hit straight shots (ie, so the ball landed as close to the center line of the virtual driving range that the launch monitor provided) using their own 6-iron club and the Titleist golf balls provided (DT Solo; Titleist, Fairhaven, MA). All shots were made from an artificial grass mat
