This study aims to examine the situational anxiety levels of wrestlers before and after competition using arrange of variables. A total of 39 elite athletes, 20 men and 19 women, who had previously won medals in World and European Championships, participated in the study during the Senior Turkish Championships in Adana in 2017. The study utilised the 'State-Trait Anxiety Inventory' which was introduced by Spielberger and colleagues in 1964, translated into Turkish and utilised by Oner and Le Compte (1983), and was applied to the wrestlers on the continuous-state anxiety scale. The Spss 21.00 package program was used for the data analysis, mainly the T test, which determines the relationship between frequency distribution demographics, and the relationship between two independent variables and anxiety levels. In addition, the Anova Waryans test was used to determine the relationship between more than two variables and state anxiety levels. The difference between variables is determined based on the result p.0.05. The findings showed that the level of anxiety before the competition was higher than afterwards and there was found to be a significant difference between the genders and also wrestling styles. However, the results showed no significant difference when considering the variables of age, length of time competing at the chosen sport, level of education, parents' level of education, and situational anxiety levels before and after the competition. Based on the results, it is suggested that coaches educate themselves in the field of sports psychology and also consider working with experts in this field.
