The purpose of this study was to compare the selected biomotor abilities between runner and chaser of kho kho. A Sample of 30 male kho kho players (15 Chaser and 15 Runner) was selected through purposive sampling technique from Jawahar Navodaya Vidayalaya, Chandigarh. The speed of subjects was measured by 30 meter dash test, Agility was measured by Right boomerang run test and Cardiovascular endurance was measured by 9 min run/ walk test. Collected data were analysed by computing the t test to see the significance mean difference between runner and chaser on biomoter abilities. The results indicated that there were insignificant differences with regard to biomotor abilities of speed, agility and cardiovascular endurance between runner and chaser of kho kho. The outcome of study might help physical educators and coaches to evaluate and modify the training programs pertaining to the biomotor abilities for runner and chaser of kho kho.
