Summary Aims to ascertain whether a relationship exists between repeated sprint ability (RSA) and aerobic fitness. RSA was assessed by 3 repeated sprint sessions departing avery 15, 30, or 60 seconds. Peak oxygen uptake and running velocity at VO2peak assessed aerobic fitness. When recovery time was increased between sprints, running velocity was better maintained, repeated sprint time was faster and the decrement in running velocity was smaller. Higher Vmax scores appear related to improved RSA as measured by the better maintainance of sprinting velocity.
