Analysis of the performance in the men's marathon run from 1945 to the present in the Czech Republic
PODLEŠÁKOVÁ, Lenka
This bachelor thesis deals with the analysis of the development of the performance of Czech competitors on the marathon track. The aim of the thesis was to find out how the performance of our marathon runners evolved over time and whether the marathon time scale was rather shortened or extended. In the analytical part, there were first described the basic characteristics of the marathon, such as its history, long-run runner assumptions, training developments, the effect of altitude on performance, or, for example, how the state supports marathon runners and sport. The synthetic part of the thesis contains graphs and tables, obtained from data analysis, which were obtained in tables and in athletics yearbooks. These are very important indicators of marathon performance development. Most of the graphs shows that performance has risen since the start of the period under review until the 1990s. In the first half of the period under review, Czech athletes were most supported by the state and the way for their success was more supported by the state than in the second half. The loss of support after the fall of the Communist Party was one of the reasons why we do not currently have a marathon runner who is approaching a new Czech record. In conclusion, it is worthwhile to support a broader base of athletes, where a strong individual sportman can occur who will succeed on the international scene.
