The purpose of this study is to investigate sport-related weight pressures, body image satisfaction, and social physique anxiety in elite female athletes. Exploration of sport-related weight pressures is important for the elite athlete research domain, so that athletes, coaches and sporting organisations can be informed about the psychological outcomes associated with sport-related weight pressures and to guide interventions to promote positive perceptions of body image and mental health for elite female athletes.
You are invited to participate in this study if you are (a) 16 years of age or older, (b) currently competing and representing your state, or competing at a national or international level in you sport, and (c) training/competing at least 8 hours a week.
Participants will be asked to fill out several online questionnaires about eating attitudes, weight pressures in sport, body satisfaction, self-esteem and perfectionism. Participation in this study will take approximately 30 minutes.
