Investigation of underlying psychological factors on performance in wrestling
Author(s): Shiv Kant
Abstract: The importance of psychological factors in successful sports performance has been acknowledged both academically and anecdotally. Yet the amount of time that coaches and athletes actually spend on mental practice as compared to physical practice belies its significance. A key component in developing a foundation for psychological intervention programs is to understand the psychological status of athletes. The purpose of this investigation was thus to identify the psychological factors that influence the performance of wrestling players.
