## Abstract

**:**

## 1. Introduction

^{−1}[6,7]. To avoid the pitfalls of qualitative analysis, the objective quantification of sport performance is of great interest [8]. To study sport performance with high internal and external validity, first, the sport should be assessed in competition or in competition-like situations, in the absence of instrumentation that can hamper performance. Second, the performance level of athletes should represent the population to be studied and the number of subjects should be sufficiently high to allow for generalisation of the findings to the given population. Third, the measurement equipment needs to be sufficiently accurate and precise despite the outdoor conditions [9].

## 2. Materials and Methods

#### 2.1. Video Based PosEst Method

^{−1}. The camera was horizontally levelled and slightly angled on the trajectory to capture as much as possible of the flight and the take-off ($6.5$ $\mathrm{m}$ prior to take-off to 22 $\mathrm{m}$ after). The image space was calibrated using the ski jumpers segment lengths, measured with a measuring tape prior to testing. The image calibration was conducted by first rotating the image plane in such way that the average segment length of the leg, thigh and arm of the ski jumpers in the 16 jumps remained constant during the flight. Second, calibration was achieved from the image space in pixels to the object space in meters using the athletes’ segment lengths.

## 3. Results and Discussion

#### 3.1. Part I: Comparison of PosEst and dGNSS Data

^{−1}and ± $0.97$ m s

^{−2}as a maximum for the velocity and acceleration respectively. The largest difference was observed in the horizontal direction, with an MAE of ± $0.41$ m s

^{−1}and ± $1.56$ m s

^{−2}as a maximum for the region 5–20 $\mathrm{m}$. Altogether, the uncertainty in the measurements was high the first 5 $\mathrm{m}$ and deviated from the edge of the in-run. All measurements showed good agreement from 5 $\mathrm{m}$ after the in-run. The consistency and agreement 5$\mathrm{m}$ indicates that these methods are reliable for use in such analyses.

#### 3.2. Part II: Case Study

#### 3.2.1. External Data

^{−1}. For more information about the simulation, the reader is referred to [6].

#### 3.2.2. In-Run

^{−1}was observed, with the difference in the velocity components being $0.86$ m s

^{−1}and $0.60$ m s

^{−1}in ${v}_{x}$ and ${v}_{y}$, respectively. During the in-run, the difference in ${v}_{y}$ diminished to zero and ${v}_{x}$ to approximately half, and thus the difference in v was $0.43$ m s

^{−1}approaching the edge of the in-run. About $0.3$ m s

^{−1}of the speed difference was expected due to the lower start gate in Jump 2 [6], but $0.1$ m s

^{−1}( $0.36$ $\mathrm{k}$$\mathrm{m}$ h

^{−1}, equivalent to the effect of 1 gate) cannot be explained by the gate difference. In other words, Jump 1 showed a $0.1$ m s

^{−1}better performance regarding in-run speed. This is a substantial difference, since a difference in in-run speed at take-off of ∼ $0.3$ m s

^{−1}can increase the jump distance by 3.8–$10.1$ $\mathrm{m}$ approximately, depending on hill size and wind conditions [51,52].
