Abstract

This study examined the relation between grit, competitive levels, and athletic events in Japanese athletes (N = 496, 428 men; mean age = 20.6 years, SD = 0.6). The results indicated that consistency of interest was marginally positively associated with competitive levels in closed-skills sports, but a negative association existed between the two in open-skills sports. In contrast, the interaction of athletic events and perseverance of effort were not significantly associated with competitive levels. These findings suggest that the combination of grit and participation in athletic events has a different relation to competitive levels.
