Since, sports activities are likely to be changes in various parameters of plantar pressure distribution during walking to create, This study compared patterns of plantar pressure distribution between right and left feet and their relationship with anthropometric parameters. 10 elite wrestler with the average and standard deviation of age: 23.6±3.33 yrs, height: 173.5±7.67 cm and mass: 83.3±21.8 kg voluntarily participated as subjects in this study. EMED-AT2 System for plantar pressure analysis, of parametric statistical methods paired t-test to compare parameters between the right and left leg and also of the Pearson methods for investigating correlation between variables was used. The only in the contact area parameter between the right leg and left at 4th mask significant differences were found (p≤0.05, ES=0.03). Also positive and significant correlation between height and mass with all the parameters were found (p≤0.01, p≤0.05) and in the heel area the correlation between maximum force in the right foot with height (medial heel r2=0.45 ; lateral heel r2=0.68) and weight (medial heel r2=0.56 ; lateral heel r2=0.8) and in the left foot with height (lateral heel r2=0.53) and weight (lateral heel r2=0.55) was reversed. (p≤0.05). Considering the lack of significant differences in plantar pressure parameters between the right and left foot, it could be argued, in wrestling foot demand function is the same. Also this research confirmed the results previous study indicating the absence of dominant leg in wrestling.
