Abstract:
This chapter presents an introduction to the concept of competitive sports and the place of biomechanics within sport science. This is followed by the definition of sport biomechanics and the identification of various sectors where biomechanics is particularly useful. Finally, there is introduction into the various sections of sport biomechanics. Based on this information, the aim and the structure of the present book are discussed.
