In model of athropological dimensions for successfully persuing of top-level
sport, there are some dimensions in which evaluation coches can not make mistake in process of selection. That especially stand for morphological characteristics in women sport gymnastics. World Gymnastic Federation (FIG) recomended specific indicators of
morphological status of boys and girls to prevent that factor of body constituion should
not be limited factor for progres in sport gymnastics. The question is how many children
in specific region are appropriate with mentioned morphological model, when future top-level results is planed? Another question is, are the morphological characteristics and postural status of some population limited factor which make that some region is
„condemned“ on much harder way to succes in sport gymnastics?
Morphological and postural status was evaluated on the sample of i.e. 412 girls 6-8 years old of the region of Vojvodina, and compared to recomended standards of
World gymnastic Federation (FIG). The aim of this research was to analize selection base
for woman sport gymnastics in Vojvodina as important factor of development of that
sport, by aspect of morphological and postural status.
