Terry, Peter C. and Lane, Andrew M. (2011) Mood and emotions. In: The new sport and exercise psychology companion. Fitness Information Technology, Morgantown, West Virginia, United States, pp. 63-87. ISBN 978-1-935412-02-1


There is no doubt that sport generates powerful emotional responses among participants and spectators alike. ... There is also strong anecdotal evidence that the emotions experienced by athletes prior to and during sport performance have a profound effect upon the quality of their performances (see Hanin 2000; Lane 2007). The purpose of this chapter is to explore the nature of the link between emotional responses and athletic performance.
