Purpose: In this study, to examine the effect of running clockwise and counterclockwise in athletics on the running times of athletes; Again, it is aimed to investigate whether the throwing and jumping directions of throwing and jumping branches have an effect on performance. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted with the participation of 10 athletes (5 females and 5 males) aged between 18-22 years old, who are actively competing at elite level. Shot put, hammer throw, long jump and high jump performances were recorded, 60 each from east to west and 60 from west to east. In the measurements made twice a week in throwing and jumping branches, 3 throws and jumps were made from east to west and 3 from west to east. On the first measurement day of the week, the first 3 of 6 shots and jumps were made from east to west and the last 3 from west to east. On the other measurement day, the order was made in the opposite way. A rest period of 5 minutes was given between shooting and jumping. The 200m running performance was evaluated on two separate days of the week. On the first measurement day of the week, first 1 run counterclockwise, and 45 minutes later, clockwise jogging was done. On the second measurement day of the week, the running direction order was made in the opposite way. Throw and jump distance were measured in meters. The 200m running time was measured with a photo finish measuring instrument. Results: Both male and female subjects; hammer throw, shot put, long jump and high jump performances were statistically higher when exhibited from west to east (p<0.01). Anti-clockwise running performances of both male and female subjects were found to be statistically higher than clockwise (p<0.01). Conclusion: In athletics, higher performance is exhibited when throwing and jumping from west to east. Performance is higher in counterclockwise runs.
