It was interesting to see how in the example of the Judo athlete the mood profiles were utilized to measure how the training impacted the athlete. The significant peak of fatigue during the training camp up to the olympic trials is probably consistent with other sports where coaches attempt to create an environment that will be more of a stress to the athlete than the competition. If they can be exposed and prepare for these extremes they will hopefully have developed the proper skills and techniques during training to not let their performance suffer when it will count the most. It was also to see from an empirical standpoint how the athlete’s self reporting could be utilized to develop future training protocols and develop an outline for success with future athletes that will be facing a similar situation.
