Joanna Zeiger, M.S., Ph.D., a triathlete Olympian and world champion with a formidable athletic history in swimming, running and cycling, is conducting a research study about mental toughness in endurance athletes (The Sisu Study).

If you are over the age of 18 and an endurance athlete, you can participate in a 51-question mental toughness research study.

Sisu is a Finnish word that means grit.

The purpose of this research study is to develop a mental toughness personality profile in endurance athletes, The Sisu Profile. Participants will be asked to answer a survey that will take about 6 minutes to complete. While there are no direct benefits to participants, you will be helping to increase knowledge about mental toughness in endurance athletes which can be used to provide education for mental skills training.
