Table 1 Classification of study participants

From: A pilot study comparing the metabolic profiles of elite-level athletes from different sporting disciplines

  1. (A) Distribution of elite athletes in various categories based on sport type-associated peak dynamic (maximal oxygen uptake percentage; VO2) and peak static (maximal voluntary muscle contraction percentage; MVC) components achieved during competition as described previously [21]. The number and gender (M for males and F for females) of participants in each group are also indicated. (B) Categorization of sport types into classes based on power alone regardless of endurance (left) and similarly for endurance alone ignoring power (right); these classes were used in the statistical analysis
