Selçuk Gençay and Ertuğrul GençayAbstract:
This study examined the levels of burnout and life satisfaction among elite wrestlers in Turkey. The sample was comprised of 50 males elite wrestlers, ranging in age from 18 to 33 years. The participants completed the athlete burnout questionnaire and life satisfaction scale. The independent-samples t-test was used to determine whether there was a difference between the two groups in terms of averages. Correlation analysis was performed to determine whether life satisfaction and athletic burnout was affected by independent variables. As a result, there was significant difference in the sport devaluation sub-dimension compared to the wrestling duration (year).There was significant difference in the reduced accomplishment sub-dimension for number of weekly training. There was significant difference in physical / emotional exhaustion sub-dimension for duration of training (hour). Also, there was significant difference in the reduced accomplishment sub-dimension according to pre-competition stress situations (p <.05). As the rest after training increased, life satisfaction increased. As "sport devaluation" and "reduced success" increase, life satisfaction was decreased.Pages: 20-24 | 129 Views 16 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
