LOPEZ CAZORLA, Rafael; HERNANDEZ MENDO, Antonio; REIGAL GARRIDO, Rafael Enrique  and  MORALES SANCHEZ, Verónica. Relationship between self-concept and psychological sport profile in triathletes. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.95-102. ISSN 1989-5879.

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between self-concept and psychological profile on a sample of triathletes. Participated in the study 88 athletes aged between 20 and 55 years (M = 36.06, SD = 7.75). The "Autoconcepto Forma 5" questionnaire (AF5) was used to evaluate the multidimensional self-concept and the Inventory of Sports Performance (IPED) was used to analyze the psychological profile. The correlation analysis performed showed significant relationships between the constructs studied and highlighting that the emotional self-concept was the variable which had the strongest association with IPED factors. In addition, self-confidence, negative coping control and attitudinal control were the dimensions of the IPED who obtained a better predictive value from the different factors of self-concept. The results found showed the importance of self-concept in the configuration of the psychological skills involved in the athlete's performance.
