The age of reaching personal best performance (mean±SD) is reported for each subgroup of athlete. The sample was sub-grouped on the base of the percentiles of the personal best performance (reported in the x axis). Overall, top-level athletes reached their personal best performance later than the rest of the sample in all disciplines and genders: (A) men high jump; (B) men long jump; (C) women high jump; (D) women long jump. Post hoc analysis is showed as: *** p<0.0001.
For each age from 14 to 18 years, the annual rates of change in performance (mean±SD) are reported for top-level athletes and the rest of the sample. Overall, top-level athletes showed greater annual rate of change in performance than the rest of the sample in all disciplines and genders: (A) men high jump; (B) men long jump; (C) women high jump; (D) women long jump. Post hoc analysis are reported as *p<0.05; **p<0.01; **p<0.001.
