Characterization of anxiety levels among track and field athletes
The purpose of this study was to characterize the levels of anxiety among young track and field athletes. The sample consisted of 147 athletes (89 males and 58 females). These were divided according to the independent variables defined for the present study, namely: competitive age group, sport and ranking. The4 instruments used were the CSAI-2 and ICPC. The statistical procedures used were the descriptive and correlation techniques. In general the results confirmed those obtained in prior studies. The results further suggested that the systematic use of the ICPC by coaches may be an adequate way to better know the athletes they work with.
