DIAZ, J.; GUTIERREZ, J.N.  and  HOYOS, J.A.. Mood states of pre-competitive and sports results in cantabrian bowling players. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp.53-64. ISSN 1989-5879.

In this paper, bolo-palma player's pre-competition mood is analyzed and described. These different moods are obtained through the test of the Profile of Mood States (POMS). The sample is made up of 13 bolos players within the highest division in Cantabria that took part in the final stage of the 74th Regional Boliche Cantábrico Championship. The graphic of the profiles of the pre-competition moods obtained have been carried out and analyzed based on the results and the final classification of the players. A correlational study between the factors of POMS has been developed, as well as the contrast based on the t Student and the differences between players have been analyzed considering the age, the competition experience and the fact of having played right before filling out the questionnaire. The results show that the so called iceberg profile is predominant in players who took part in the final stage of the championship. The best classification and results are obtained by players whose pre-competition mood is more suitable and these player tend to be those with longer experience and older.
