  Abstract:  VIEW PDF: MOTIVATION AND MOOD STATES IN CONNECTION WITH SPORTS: AN EMPIRICAL EXAMINATION OF HUNGARIAN AND FRENCH ATHLETES

The authors investigated French and Hungarian gymnasts’ and ballgame players’ motivation in sport and their individual mood states during a preparation period. For the three hypotheses it was assumed that the external motivator is less characteristic of French gymnasts. It was supposed that for gymnasts that intrinsic motivation toward accomplishment is of greater influence than for ballgame-players, and it is presumed that a higher intrinsic motivator factor value is a consequence of a higher Vigour-value. The Profile of Mood State Scales factors and the Sport Motivation Scale factors statistical analyses showed that Hungarian gymnasts displayed greater values in Anger and Fatigue than the French athletes, whose one external motivation value was statistically significantly different. Ballgame-players displayed significantly higher Anger values, while gymnasts demonstrated an emphasized intrinsic motivation toward accomplishment. The correlation between the two scales showed that two of the internal motivators have been correlated with Vigour factor.

Keywords:Keywords: Sport Motivation Scale (SMS), Profile of Mood State (POMS), gymnasts, ballgame players, two nations.
