Abstract

"The present case study investigates stress and recovery of the Danish national under-
20 ice hockey players during a training camp and the following World Championship. The aims
were to track their stress-recovery states longitudinally, and to map their main sources of stress
and recovery. Methods included a survey, qualitative interviews and a coach diary. Results showed
well-balanced stress-recovery states during the entire period, and the athletes stated that
this positively affected their well-being, and performance. The athletes’ perceived sources of
stress and recovery were classified into organizational, social, personal and athletic, with the
organizational decisions and strategies playing a major role in reducing unnecessary stress and
providing a good setting for engaging in recovery. The results lead us to suggest that coaches and
managers be very mindful of the potential influence of their decisions on the athletes’ stress and
recovery when preparing training camps and participation in major competitions."

Abstract

"In recent years there has been an increased focus on the importance of the environment
for the development of elite athletes. In order to understand the factors that contribute
to or limit an athlete’s sporting development, it is not enough to study only the individual but
the whole environment in which the athlete develops. The purpose of this chapter is to investigate
what characterizes a successful elite sport environment in Danish badminton. An elite
sports environment that continuously manages to create senior results at the highest international
level and win medals at the European championships, the World championships and
the Olympics. The study was organized as a case study of the national elite sports center in
Badminton Denmark (BD). Data was based on interviews with players, coaches and managers,
observations on training and in competitions, meetings and analysis of documents. The
environment was centered on self-understanding based on “us against the rest of the world” and a fundamental value in the environment was to create intelligent players while focusing
on individual development through high training quality. The organizational culture was
characterized by being: 1) a well documented, quality oriented and dialogue-based learning
environment, 2) an environment with hard competition and 3) an environment with proximal
role models."
