Abstract Resume

Background: The sport Rafting comes down on the descent of rivers in inflatable boats, where members of the vessel paddle under the command of an instructor responsible for the
group's guidance during the route. Practiced by teams of 4 or 6 athletes of both sexes and with initial age of 16 years old. Considered as a high intensity of activity but can also be characterized as
long lasting, which in these characteristics can be realized in four modes: Sprint, Head to Head (H2H), Slalom and Downriver lasting between 20 to 60 minutes depending on the rapids and access to the
river. Rafting has a stress intensity appeared to all practitioners, however it may be that the physical profile of athletes interfere demand imposed upon the practitioners differently. The sports
performance activities have been associated with several physical characteristics such as body composition, motor valences and maximum oxygen consumption (VO2MÁX.). This study aims to identify profile
of the world four-times champion team Rafting in relation to body composition tests, aerobic power and motor tests, in order to create a pattern of physical evaluation for athletes, besides allowing
the choice of the best activities respecting the biological individuality, generating adequate training in accordance with the potential found.


Methods: The study included seven male athletes with 20.7 ± 3.7 years of age who are part of the team. The staff was held a week before the World Championships in Indonesia 2015. The
bioelectrical impedance tests were performed (InBody 720®), spirometry with rowing ergometer (Concept II - VT, USA) with MedGraphics gas analyzer (VO2000 ™) and motor tests (abdominal strength, ground
support, vertical jump, standing long jump and Shutter Run), descriptive statistics was used to demonstrate the results.


Results: We observed an average of the following variables: body weight 72.6 ± 6.3 kg, 176.6 ± 7.7 cm height, BMI 23.3 ± 1.3 kg/m2, fat percentage 6 ± 1.9 %, body fat 4.4 ± 1.4 kg,
lean body mass 68.3 ± 6.3 kg, bone mass 14.6 ± 1.3 kg, residual mass 15.2 ± 1.3 kg, muscle mass 38, 5 ± 4.0 kg, maximum oxygen consumption 65.4 ± 2.4 ml/kg/ min, 60-s sit up test to measure abdominal
muscle endurance 56.4 ± 11.7 rep/min, arm flexion test 58 ± 13.3 rep/min, vertical jump test 48.7 ± 10.2 cm, standing long jump test 215.7 ± 27.1 cm, test Shutter Run 11.6 ± 1 seconds.


Conclusions: We conclude that the results show the profile of the world four-times champion team Rafting and demonstrates a vestment the base teams.
