Influence Running Shoes on Performance of Sprinters Based on Grey Relational Analysis

Mingchang Liu, Qiuyan Li


Grey relational analysis uses arithmetical operation to process the obtained data so as to reflect primary factor and secondary factor, favorable factor and adverse factor, dominant factor and non-dominant factor among numerous factors through calculation of weight, which is conducive to quantitative analysis of interrelation between factors. Correlation between running shoes and performance of sprinters is worthy of being discussed, and but no researcher has applied grey relational analysis to research on this correlation. Grey relational analysis is used to analyze influence of running shoes on performance of sprinters so as to reflect significance of running shoes to one sprinter. Results demonstrate that, application of grey relational analysis to research on influence of running shoes on sprinters can help us not only find out correlation between running shoes and performance of sprinters but also further apply grey relational analysis to sprint event.
