Material and Methods: This study was carried out on 100 indigenous and 100 non-indigenous game players in the age group between 16 to 25 years. The VO2 Max was recorded with the multi-stage 20-m shuttle run test (MSRT). Its measurement unit is mL/kg/min. independent t-test was used as a statistical test. Further ANOVA followed by post-hoc were used to compare each game players. p< 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Result: The mean VO2 Max value of indigenous and non-indigenous game players were 44.20 43.13 respectively. It shows insignificant difference of VO2 Max among both players. Further the mean value of VO2 Max of Kho-Kho, Kabaddi, Handball and Basketball was 45.07, 43.33, 42.40 and 43.82 respectively. It shows significance difference among Kho-Kho and Handball Players.
Conclusion: It concludes, both Indigenous and Non-indigenous game players require same amount of maximal oxygen uptake. The result demonstrates that insignificant difference in VO2 Max among Indigenous and Non-indigenous game Players.
