dc.description.abstract Researchers are continually attempting to evaluate and define the factors that determine sport ability. In addition to fitness, a healthy body and training of abilities, psychological factors, mental, emotional and external variables should also be taken into account. Sport performance is the function of a complicated matrix of related factors. A better understanding of this can assist both trainers and participants with their psychological preparation and performance enhancement (Liebetrau, 1982). This study attempts to act as an exploratory investigation in three of the many complicated variables involved with sport performance. A comparison is made between sporting team members and individual competitors regarding anxiety, motivation to perform and concentration style in high level and low level competition. The sample group for the investigation comprised 100 male, English speaking, white persons between the ages of 20 and 34. The sportsmen were divided into four equal groups according to their level of participation in sport and the type of sport in which they participate. en
