Dermatoglyphic features of feet are compared between sports men and non-sports men with in the age group 16-23 years. Various morphometric and dermatoglyphic parameters were considered. The result analyzed, showed high variation and greater number of loops at distal thenar of the sports men than in non-sports men. This might be genetic marker for prognostication of potentiality in sports men.
