Abstract: This study investigated the link between physical self-presentation issues and competitive anxiety in male, master level, high-board divers (N=84, M age=29.25, SD=14.25). Competitive trait anxiety, social physique anxiety, and physical self-presentation confidence, were assessed using the Sport Anxiety Scale, Social Physique Anxiety Scale, and the Physical Self-Presentation inventory. Stepwise regression analyses indicated that variance in competitive anxiety was accounted for by the physical self-presentation variables and that these variables were most strongly associated with the cognitive anxiety subscale Worry, and to a lesser extent, Somatic Anxiety. The results of this study provide support for the argument that physical self-presentation is associated with competitive anxiety in male athletes.
