The life of athletes is filled with the anxieties and experiences of winning and losing, hence, stressful circumstances are an endemic part of their living. Athletes face moments during competition that appear to carry great psychological significance. When momentum starts shifting from one direction to another, they are required to remain completely focused and calm. The journey towards peak performance is usually far from smooth and great athletes and teams suffer setbacks some times. The present paper attempts to study the attributional style in male and female athletes using Attribution of success and failure (ASUFA) Inventory. Results shows a significant inter-correlation among the dimensions of attribution style. However, no gender differences were reported.

The journey towards peak performance is usually far from smooth and great athletes and teams suffer setbacks some times. The present paper attempts to study the attributional style in male and female athletes using Attribution of success and failure (ASUFA) Inventory.
