Several studies (Georgopoulos et al., 2002; Thomis et al.; Beunen & Malina; Avila-Carvalho et al., 2012, 2013; Malina et al., 2013; Purenovic-Ivanovic et al.) indicate that gymnasts have a late in pubertal stages, age at menarche and age at peak height velocity (PHV), especially in elite gymnasts.
Using a standardised predictive equation for boys (13), years to and from peak height velocity (YPHV) was calculated via anthropometric measurements (standing height, sitting height, leg length, body mass) and age.
Anthropometric data and age at peak height velocity of participants separated by relative age quarter and for the total sample.
The results from this study confirmed that skinfolds and biological maturity (determined by age peak height velocity, APHV) were the best predictors of body fat percentage in young soccer players.
The pubertal males then achieved a peak height velocity of 9.5 cm/year at about 13.5 year of age, which coincided with pubertal genital stages 3 and 4 (Veldhius et al., 2005).
To be included in the present analyses, participants required (i) a measure of age at peak height velocity (APHV), (ii) a measure of adolescence aerobic fitness, (iii) adolescence skinfold measures, and (iv) data to determine CMR in mid-adulthood (either 40 or 50 years of age).

The peak incidence of traumatic fractures coincides with the age of peak height velocity, the age at which longitudinal growth is fastest.
The hypothesis follows that bone fragility at peak height velocity results from a transient deficit in bone mineral accrual relative to bone size.
Therefore, it is not possible to directly describe the timing of growth-related variables such as peak height velocity or peak weight velocity.
