Risk-taking: An opportunity to win in elite sports


In elite sports, athletes must deal with dynamic and complex situations that involve risk and make decisions that may put them at risk to win. A moment of hesitation or an inappropriate prior decision by an athlete can allow an opponent to gain an advantage and win. This chapter is intended to provide an overview of how elite athletes take and manage risk to maximize their performance. Specifically, it aims to explain: (a) how athletes perceive and assess risk; (b) how they prepare to take and manage risk before a competition; and (c) how they take and manage risk during a competition.
