Male track and field athletes at greater risk of injury

May 4, 2015

Compared with other sexes and competition levels, male track and field athletes, particularly masters male athletes, are at a greater risk of injury, according to researchers.

During the course of a 3-year period, the researchers recorded 436 injuries sustained by 48,473 competing athletes participating in the Penn Relays Carnival who were treated by the medical staff. The researchers determined the absolute number of injuries and relative injury rates and calculated odds ratios of injury rates between sexes, competition levels and events. Additionally, the researchers classified the injuries as major or minor medical or orthopedic injuries.
