Abstract

Body Dimensions of Elite Handball Players with Respect to Laterality, Playing Positions and Playing Standard

The aim of the present study was to examine, using a large player database, between-playing positions and playing standard differences in body dimensions. Methods: We compared stature and body mass of 1295 male elite handball players from different playing positions, i.e., backs (left and right), center backs, goalkeepers, pivots, wings (left and right) and playing standards (European championship, Champions league matches and national leagues from Germany, Spain and France).

Keywords: Stature; Body mass; Anthropometric benchmarks; Talent identification; Players selection
