• Less able to resist pressure from coaches and friends

Question: Why might some athletes stop enjoying their sport as much?

Alice was very concerned with her performance and that can stop us enjoying sport as much as we used to. Always focus on technique, hard work, and enjoyment and performance will follow.

Notice how Alice was also concerned about her friend who cheated to win the match. She did not approve of him cheating.
