ABSTRACT
The aim of this study is to determine the factors motivating the weight lifters participating in a weight-lifting championship and their organizational motivation level. Survey method was used in the study and the data were obtained from the weight lifters participating in Inter-club weight lifting champion. The obtained data were analyzed through SPSS 10.0 program package. The study findings revealed that though the frequencies of the motivational factors vary, aggregation is on the option “I agree”. According to gender variable, significant differences were found for the items 4, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 14. For the weight lifters, spiritual incentives are as important as material incentives. Appreciation of their efforts, effective communication among the weight lifters, coaches, club managers, good friendships result in high motivation. On the other hand, biased attitudes of the managers, unjust waging practices, lack of facilities and equipment negatively affect the motivation.
