Sport Psychology:
Russian Perspectives

By Dr. Marina Enmolaeva

Dr. Marina Ermolaeva has written a remarkable book about her experiences as the sport psychologist for Russian track and field teams. During her 17 years, she worked with some of Russia’s elite athletes – helping them hone their psychological skills so that they could excel during Olympic and world-class international competitions. Marina’s innovative psychological skills training program was secretive and only now is she able to explain how the Russian approach integrated sport psychology within the annual training cycle of physical and mental preparation. In Russia, psychological preparation is an integral part of the athlete’s total preparation.

How psychological preparation is integrated into the annual training program of physical preparation.

The Russian approach used the mind to enhance individual and collective performance of their teams.

There are two forms of training, i.e., application of fundamental psychological principles, and individual preparation.

Attention is given to problems that arise at different stages of preparation.

The subject of investigation is the personality of athletes.

The leading motivator for elite athletes is success in high-level competitions.
