A2 PE Confidence by Mr Baynton on Prezi How sports psychologists can save you from choking | Sport | The Observer Kenny Perry could taste history. He had a two-shot lead with two holes to go at the 2009 Masters - all he had to do was not make any big mistakes and he would become, at 48, the oldest Masters champion in history. For three days at Augusta, he had played the best golf of his life: on the first 70 holes, he made only four bogeys. But then, at the 71st hole, everything started to fall apart. It began with his approach shot, which sailed left over the green. On the final hole, the tee shot that looked straight ended up twisting left and landing in a bunker. The play-off didn't go much better. The next day Perry was stoic. We call such failures "choking", if only because a person frayed by pressure might as well not have oxygen. Scientists have begun to uncover the causes of choking, diagnosing the particular mental differences that allow some people to succeed while others wither in the spotlight. But the mental exertion pays off, at least at first.

Définition Dans la théorie (en bref), le stress signifie que notre organisme est perturbé biologiquement et psychiquement par une agression quelconque. Histoire du stress Pour la petite histoire, les recherches sur le stress ont évolué et ont permis de le définir d’une manière plus précise (même si cela reste encore flou). Ainsi, selon Beck, on mettrait en place des « patterns » d’évaluation correspondant à un ensemble de situations. Réactions et conséquences Le problème du stress est qu’il provoque en général des réactions négatives. Spécificité du stress sportif Les psychologues font une différence entre le stress du quotidien et le stress que l’on éprouve dans le milieu sportif.
