The study was conducted on selected 30 Para-Swimmers and 30 Para-Athletes. Their age ranging from 20 - 25 years. Questionnaires were used as a tool to find out the mental toughness. Dr. Alan Goldberg’s modified questionnaire and sports aggression inventory standardized by Anand Kumar and P.S. Shukla, were selected and used for the study.
