    Abstract

    The purpose of this study was to examine the Body Mass Index of 180 female Spanish Olympic athletes (M age = 27.1 yr., SD=5.9 yr.) who participate in presentation sports and nonpresentation sports, in comparison with 114 female non-athletes (M age = 20.7, SD=1.5 yr.). Presentation sports athletes have a profile similar to that of a university student but by age with a lower Body Mass Index. In particular, rhythmic gymnasts have a lower weight and Body Mass Index than other athletes and nonathletes. © Perceptual and Motor Skills 2005.
