Abstract :

Oliveira GT, Meireles A, Hudson TA, Soares ER, Souza HLR, Santos MP, Mauad FO, Nascimento BF, Marocolo M, Ferreira RM. Performance Expectation, Anxiety, and Motivation of Triathletes and Swimmers during Different Lockdowns Stages in Covid-19 Pandemic. JEPonline 2022;25(4):75-83. The purpose of this study was to analyze the levels of anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic and the motivation to return to training and competitions according to sex, sports experience, and training status before and during the isolation of swimmers and triathletes. We used the structured questionnaires Sports Motivation Scale 2 and the Three-Factor Anxiety Inventory 2, and a semi-structured questionnaire containing questions related to age and sex, in addition to a set of general information about their sports practice, such as the level of experience, the number of training sessions per week, and the competitive level and training sessions before and during restriction. A significant difference was observed in the dimensions of anxiety in public autofocus and autonomic hyperactivity between sex during swimming, intrinsic motivation, and identified between modalities and perceived control between sex and between modalities. In general, there was no association between anxiety and motivation and sports level, modality, and sex of the athletes. Key Words: Athletes; Sports; Swimming; Triathlon
