BICALHO, CCF; MELO, GF  y  NOCE, F. Resilience of athletes: a systematic review based on a citation network analysis. CPD [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.3, pp.26-40.  Epub 09-Nov-2020. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aims of the study are to understand indicators and the scope of theoretical models adopted to describe athletes' resilience, as well as to analyze their impact on investigations about this resilience. A search for original academic publications within a 10-year period was conducted in the PubMed / Medline, Web of Science, Taylor and Francis, Lilacs, Scopus, Human Kinects, and Science Direct databases. Articles were analyzed based on their methodological characteristics and citation network analysis. In total, 47 articles were identified, the most referenced of which was Fletcher and Sarkar (2012), followed by Galli and Vealey (2008). The Grounded Theory of Psychological Resilience and Optimal Sport Performance by Fletcher and Sarkar (2012) seems to best encompass the basic theoretical elementary aspects to better understand athletes' resilience. In conclusion, the sport resilience is an on-going dynamic process based on psychological individual characteristics and interactions the athlete with the environment.
