Authors

Abstract

The aim of our study is to examine the effects of basketball players’ death anxiety and Covid-19 pandemic anxiety levels on sports-specific achievement motivation. The study sample consisted of 63 basketball players, 46 men, and 17 women, playing in the Turkish Basketball 2nd League. To obtain study data; sport-specific achievement motivation scale, death anxiety scale, and coronavirus anxiety scale short form were used. The obtained data showed normal distribution. Therefore, independent samples t-test, ANOVA test, correlation analysis, and regression analysis were used at the 0.05 significance level. According to the results obtained from our study; the level of fear of death of the athletes is at medium-level (mean= 77.03). Athletes have high achievement motivation in sports (mean=127.36). Although the coronavirus anxiety levels of athletes are generally very low, there are differences between age groups. There is a weak positive correlation between the death anxiety levels of the athletes and the level of achievement-motivation in sports.
