This study aims at identifying the relationship of sports flannel on skin contact allergy, white blood cells and distance achievement of weight throwing players from the colleges of the University of Al-Qadisiyah. The descriptive approach was used in a correlative style due to its suitability with the nature of the study. The sample of the study consists of 18 players, one player of each college of the University of Al-Qadisiyah. The players are divided into two groups with equal numbers (the first group players wear flannel made of natural fabric while the second group players wear flannel made of nylon).
