Arthur Markman and the Psychology of Competition

Some athletes play to win, and others play not to lose

Posted: August 7, 2008

Art Markman will be studying the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics to examine if the games confirm the findings in his research on the psychology of competition.

"Markman is interested in situational factors that could explain why some athletes thrive under pressure while others 'choke.'"
