Parsons-Smith, Renee L. and Barkase, Sherry and Lovell, Geoff P. and Terry, Peter C. (2021) In the mood for triathlon. In: International Society of Sport Psychology: 15th World Congress (ISSP 2021), 30 Sept - 4 Oct 2021, Taipei, Taiwan.


Mood profiling is used in a variety of sporting contexts to, for example, predict performance from preperformance mood, monitor psychological responses to training load, injury, or travel across time zones, as a general indicator of psychological wellbeing, or to catalyze discussion between a sport psychologist and an athlete. The purpose of the present study was to investigate preperformance mood responses in the sport of triathlon, with a particular focus on clarifying relationships between mood, performance, and mental health.
