shorts: Short Sprints

Create short sprint (<6sec) profiles using the split times or the radar gun data. Mono-exponential equation is used to estimate maximal sprinting speed (MSS), relative acceleration (TAU), and other parameters such us maximal acceleration (MAC) and maximal relative power (PMAX). These parameters can be used to predict kinematic and kinetics variables and to compare individuals. The modeling method utilized in this package is based on the works of Chelly SM, Denis C. (2001) <doi:10.1097/00005768-200102000-00024>, Clark KP, Rieger RH, Bruno RF, Stearne DJ.
