Why young elite athletes drop out their sport at the top level? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte med denna studie var att undersöka de vanligaste faktorerna som var bidragande till en avslutad elitidrottssatsning i ungdomsåren. För att besvara studiens syfte, har intervjuer använts som datainsamlingsinstrument. Den empirisk data tolkades med hjälp av IPA- metoden. Tolkningsarbetet gav insikt om vilka unika upplevelser respondenter hade om sin avslutad elitidrottssatsning, därefter tolkades och kategoriseras deras citat under teman: övriga, interna- och externa faktorer, skador och sjukdom. Det författarna konstaterade var att elitsatsande ungdomar avslutade sin elitidrottssatsning på grund flera interna och externa faktorer tillsammans. Studien tyder på att de vanligaste faktorerna till en avslutad elitidrottssatsning var: utmattning, prestationskraven, miljöombyte, intressekonflikt, för krävande träningsmiljö och bristande ledarkompetens.
