Competing for Sleep? Factors that Affect the Amount and Quality of Sleep Obtained by Elite Athletes


Project Description

Good sleep is an important requisite for both physical and mental health. For an elite athlete, optimal sleep is imperative if they are to perform at their best. Surprisingly, a majority of elite athletes report increased levels of sleepiness as a result of insufficient sleep. A range of factors may affect sleep, including anxiety associated with competition, high training loads, international travel, altitude exposure, and demanding training/competition schedules. This project will examine a range of factors that are thought to affect the amount and quality of sleep obtained by elite athletes, with a particular focus on strategies that can be used to increase the amount of sleep obtained by elite athletes.
