matched for age, gender, height, weight, and degree of blindness. None had prior experience of yoga practice. The two cohorts were constituted as follows: The yoga group consisted of 41 children aged 12.00 ± 2.03, whereas controls consisted of 42 children aged 12.74 ± 2.32. The study was a single-blind

VI. All participants had a VI and were categorized as either low vision or complete blindness. In addition to measuring barriers to PA with the PABQ-VI, PA levels and barrier self-efficacy were also assessed. The resultant omega coefficients and the Guttman split-half coefficient suggested that the

-kick simulation for an elite blind soccer player presents a significant activating event. In elite blind soccer, penalty kicks are awarded to the opposing team after accruing five team fouls. Penalty-kick importance is escalated during the knockout stages of major international tournaments if the game ends in a

The oxygen consumption (VO2) of 30 (10 females, 20 males) legally blind adolescents and their sighted controls were compared for treadmill walking (3 mph, 4.8 km/h) and running (6 mph, 9.6 km/h). The VO2 of the visually impaired subjects averaged 24.4% and 10.8% higher than those of their same-sex age-matched controls, and 42.8% and 11.2% higher than the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) norms for walking (p<.01) and running (p<.05), respectively. The normal association between aerobic capacity and locomotor energy costs was evident among the sighted controls (r= .44, p<.05) but insignificant (r=.35, p>.05) for the visually impaired subjects. The energy costs of both walking and running were highest among the totally blind subjects, and decreased toward normal as a function of residual vision among the legally blind subjects. The energy costs of walking and running for blind adolescents are higher than both those of sighted controls and the ACSM norm values.
