Five male and 3 female runners who participated in 10,000 meter distance run in South Asian Federation (SAF) Games, 1987 were volunteered for this pilot study. The pulse rate at rest, 1 hour prior to competition and post-run for 30 min at 5 min intervals were recorded. It was observed that the runners who showed less rise of pulse prior to competition, performed better. This might be attributed to less pre-competition tension in them which helped the athletes to perform better.
