Introduction: The present study seeks to compare the function of the heart in two groups of freestyle and Greco-Roman elite wrestlers.
Methodology: Participants of the study incorporated 16 freestyle wrestlers (with the average age 18.6 ± 1.97 years old, the average height 179.06 ± 3.69 cm , and the average weight 73.06 ± 5.18 kg) as well as 16 Greco-Roman wrestlers (with the average age 18.26 ± 2.57 years old, the average height 177.6 ± 6.74 cm , and the average weight 72.66 ± 5.88 kg) who voluntarily participated in this study. As the first phase of the study, the participants were asked to fill in a personal information questionnaire. Then, their age, height, and weight were all recorded. Afterward, echocardiography was done using a 7000 challenge echocardiogram (with 3.5 - 2.5 MHZ and 5 - 3.5 MHZ transducers, made in Italy). In so doing, the participants were asked to lie on their sides or back, without holding their breath; needless to say that echocardiography was performed with simultaneous recording of electrocardiogram. Doppler effects and M-mode were also recorded with the speed 50 mm/sec. Using a barometer, specialist recorded participants' blood flow during echocardiography . Descriptive statistics was used for data description. As for data analysis, independent T-test was carried out at the level of significance 0.05 via SPSS (version 21).
Results: The study yielded the result that there is no significant difference between freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestlers in stroke volume, ejection fraction, and the percentage of shortening while resting.
