dc.description.abstractThe purpose of the study was to examine whether athlete autonomy can help to motivate young-adult athletes and reduce the risk of burnout. The research design comprised of a semi-structured focus group interview process. Both interviews were devised with the aim of developing a better understanding of athlete burnout, and, to detect whether increased autonomy would sufficiently motivate athletes to prevent onset of the syndrome. A thorough data analysis process highlighted that, in line with the majority of reviewed literature, athlete autonomy was positively related to athlete motivation. Though, it was found that athletes of varying age, maturity and drive might accept responsibility differently. It was also identified that athletes who are given a choice in decisions made and increased responsibility would be less likely to burnout due to feelings of self-worth and importance.en_GB
