Abstract

The ‘four Cs’ (concentration, confidence, control and commitment) are considered the key mental qualities required for success in competitive sports.1The increased stress of competing can cause the body to react physically and mentally, producing negative thoughts and decreasing performance. This has led to an increase in the concept of sports psychology, with the development of psychological methods to allow the participant to overcome pre-competition anxieties to confer a positive advantage.2
