Hill, Denise M and Hanton, Sheldon and Matthews, Nic and Fleming, Scott (2008) Choking in sport: a review. International Review of Sport and Exercise Psychology, 3 (1). pp. 24-39. ISSN 1750-984XFull text not available from this repository.
Choking under pressure is a pejorative colloquial term (Clark, Tofler, & Lardon, 2005) used to describe a sub-optimal sporting performance under stressful conditions. In order to prevent its occurrence and enable performers to achieve their potential under pressure, a full understanding of the phenomenon is necessary. By reviewing critically the contemporary research, the aim of the paper is to examine the suggested mechanisms and potential moderators of choking in sport, and consider the interventions designed to alleviate it. In addition, the conceptual and methodological concerns that exist within the choking literature will be presented, and directions for future research that address such concerns will be recommended.
