Olympians, Superbowl Champions, and Race Car Drivers are all using sport psychology to gain an edge on the competition. It looks to be working after the US brought home so many medals from Sochi, and the  Seattle Seahawks won the Superbowl. There is no doubt that sport psychology is gaining momentum and is becoming more and more important in the worlds of sport, business, and personal health. Here are a few recent articles published on the influence of sport psychology on elite athletics:
