Sport Psychology will reach the 2024 Summer Olympics

Sport and technology have changed considerably over time, the advancement in technology being an advancement for athletes' training and performance. In this context, psychology often makes the difference between good and great athletes, between the gold medal and the other positions in the ranking.

For this reason, in order to better understand the mental factors affecting participation in sport and physical activities, we invite you to explore the sport psychology scene. This conference will offer specialists key knowledge at a time when a new edition of the Olympic Games is approaching. The fierce struggle for winning in competition can generate violence and aggressive behaviors, especially in the case of young athletes, potentially affecting their mental health.

Our event aims to bring together researchers and academic experts to exchange and share their research findings and ideas on all aspects of sport psychology.
