Abstract

To investigate the processes of concentration during activity, 252 athletes completed R. Brickenkamp's (1962) d2 Test. Results indicated that concentration through time constraint is individual and sport-type dependent. The ratio of quantity of work to number of errors changes unequally through time by individuals. However, the difference between athletes of different sports was also significant. It is suggested that concentration be further investigated with relation to motor performance.
