ABSTRACT
Sprint is an important sporting event in track and field competition, in which, athletes’ pre-competition anxiety will greatly affect them in bringing into play their competence, which will then influence their final performance in the competition. For this reason, to study the correlation between sprinters’ pre-competition anxiety and their competition performance is of great significance in predicting athletes’ performance under difference anxiety state. After having analyzed domestic and foreign research achievements related with sport anxiety and sport performance, the study further applied CSAI-2 (1994) questionnaire to investigate athletes’ anxiety in sprint competition of a university sports meeting in Changsha. Moreover, based on neural network model, the study also constructed related models concerning athletes’ pre-competition anxiety and their competition performance. In addition, related curves concerning athletes’ pre-competition anxiety and specific performance are also formulated.
