Abstract

According to data shortage of the research literature, the purpose of the present study was determination of height, weight and body mass index (BMI) of Iran’s elite 13 to 17 years old male swimmers, who have 1st to 8th ranks in Iran. Fifty-two 13-17 years old male swimmers, who have 1st to 8th country ranks in various materials, were chosen purposefully and in access. Their height, weight and BMI were measured and computed, and mean and standard deviation were calculated. Height and weight were measured as 173.41±5.97 cm and 61.88±10.12 kg, respectively. BMI was calculated as 20.64±2.52 (kg/m2). The present results are some indices of Iran’s elite swimmers and could be noticed by swimming talent exploration instructors. However, before an accurate conclusion, further studies, specifically with separation of various swimming materials, are required, because of data shortcoming in the literature.
