The purposes of this descriptive study, then, were: (a) to identify sources of acute stress in sport contests, in which stressors were ranked based on their intensity level, (b) to identify sources of acute stress in sport contests, in which perceived stress were ranked based on the level of the athletes' perceived controllability, (c) to identify the athletes' coping style in response to these stressful situations, (d) to investigate the relationship between acute stress' intensity and athletes' perceived controllability to stress, (e) to determine the relationship between stress intensity of acute stress and coping style in sport contests, and (f) to investigate the overall relationship between stress intensity, perceived controllability, and coping style.
