Alaeddinoglu Vahdet


The aim of this study was to evaluate the personality, ego and task orientation of elite Curling athletes in the pandemic era, and the distance education support they received. Research questions were produced on the Google Forms and mailed to the athletes. Curling Super League, 1st League, and 2nd League players consisted of a total of 89 athletes were included. Explanatory information was given for the motivation of the athletes. The questionnaire consists of four stages. Explanatory information is provided for the motivation of the athletes. Demographic features are included in the 1st stage. It consists of 14 questions. At the 2nd stage, the “Task and Ego Orientation Scale in Sports” consisted of 13 items, seven of which are task orientation, and six of which are ego orientation. Those who respond to the scale participate in each article according to the evaluation system of 5. At the 3rd stage, the Eysenck Personality Scale, adapted by Karanci, consists of 23 questions in total. Questions were asked in the form of yes or no. In the final stage, there was a scale developed to evaluate the mental and physical support that Curling athletes received during the pandemic era. Athletes were expected to answer these questions. It was analyzed with SPSS 22.00 statistical program. By looking at the level of interaction between the questions, Pearson Correlation techniques were used. To test the construct validity of the scale, principal components factor analysis using Oblimin rotation method was used, item-total correlations were examined, and Cronbach’s Alpha coefficients were examined to determine internal consistency. The Cronbach Alpha number was found to be .085. Furthermore, interpretations with a value of 0.05 were made as to the error value. As a result, it has been observed that there is a positive correlation between Ego and Task orientation, personality and Sport perception and orientation and distance education support. It has been observed that there is a negative relationship between the lying sub-dimension of personality and neuroticism. It has been observed that there is a positive relationship between the task and ego orientation dimension in sports and the orientation to perceive sports and distance education support. It has been observed that Curling athletes had good mental and physical preparation periods during this period. It was also concluded that the implications of the tests carried out should be monitored on other sports branches.
