Today’s many sports are played by the peoples in the world, but athletic is one of the most popular sports. Because of its tradition, its universality and prestige, as well as the wide range of skills and qualities that encompasses, it is the basic sports “par excellence”. The purpose of the present study was to compare the selected motor fitness parameter, physiological characteristics between state level male sprinters and jumpers in West Bengal to achieve this objectives, total 40 athletes, (20 sprinters and 20 jumpers) were selected randomly from different athletics academy and coaching clubs areas in West Bengal. Their age ranged from 18 to 26 years as per their matriculation records. For the present study selected motor fitness component and physiological characteristics were selected as the measuring criteria. Mean and SD were used as descriptive statistics. Statistical t-test showed significant difference of leg explosive strength (2.2112>2.021) between sprinters and jumpers as the absolute value of the calculated t exceeds the critical value. Lastly the physiological characteristics showed similar uniqueness for both sprinters and jumpers.
