We experimentally studied the role of the auditory information, and its potential implications to enhance the performance in hammer throwing. We stimulated our athletes auditory by using the rhythmic sound (produced by the impact between the hammer and the air) associated to the best personal throw. The results are coherent with literature claiming that auditory information is an essential factor to guide motor action in sport activities. In fact, all the tested athletes both metrically improved and standardized their performance.

Abstract

We experimentally studied the role of the auditory information, and its potential implications to enhance the performance in hammer throwing. We stimulated our athletes auditory by using the rhythmic sound (produced by the impact between the hammer and the air) associated to the best personal throw. The results are coherent with literature claiming that auditory information is an essential factor to guide motor action in sport activities. In fact, all the tested athletes both metrically improved and standardized their performance. This kind of suggestions, merging from applied studies in sport activities, offers important indications to develop cognitive models about mental strategies in sport.
