Sport-related weight pressures, body image satisfaction, and social physique anxiety in elite female athletes.
About this study
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.
