The performance of an Athlete in any game is also dependent on his skill training, motivation and various other factor of physical, physiological and psychological aspects. In modern time various throwing techniques exploiting best the principles of mechanics had evolved. This study was framed to establish the difference in the Arm girth of High and Low performance Elite Throwers. Sidhu and Wadhan in (1974) worked on throwers, who were found to be heavy and tall with relatively large limb circumferences and bicondylar diameters. They had better developed lean tissue in the limbs associated with greater amount of fatty tissue. The data was subjected to f-ratio for assessing the significant difference between two groups’ means at 0.05 level of significance. Researcher measured the subject Arm girth of 20 Shot putters, Javelin and Discus Throwers and divided them into two groups of 10 each on the basis of their performance. The findings of the study had insignificant difference in the Arm Girth of High and significant difference in Low performance elite Throwers.
