Athletes) and Wushu (171 Athletes) championships.The data collection tool was the Melbourne Decision
Making Questionnaire I-II, developed by Mann and et al., (1998) and translated to Turkish by Deniz (2004).For
finding the differences, Analysis of variance (ANOVA) test, tukey test, t-test were used. According to the
findings, Self-esteem of the athletes’ rate is low (X=3,38) and Vigilance decision-making rate from the subdimentions
of the decision making was low (X =2,59). But the Buck-Passing decision-making rate was high
(X =6,78), the procrastination decision-making rate was mid-level (X =5,36) and the Hyper-Vigilance
decision-making rate was mid-level, too (X =4,95). A statistically meaningful relationship was found according
to the branch, class level at university and difficulty in the leisure time while there is not a statistically
meaningful relationship according to athletes’ gender, age, duration of the doing sports and leisure time is

national teams and to examine their differences in terms of some variables. There were 39 handball players who
actively played Handball in 2nd, 1st, Super League and National teams. The nutrition information scale, developed
by Zinn, Schofield and Wall, is composed of 23 questions for the determination of eating habits. The athletes were
interviewed by telephone and face-to-face interviews. SPSS 22 program was used in statistical calculations. The
frequency and percentage values of the obtained data were calculated and the T test and the Mann-Whitney U test
were applied to investigate the differences between the genders, the knowledge of nutrients, the knowledge of
liquid substances, the level of recovery information, the weight control knowledge level and the general nutritional
knowledge level. When the P value was less than 0.05, the difference between the groups was considered
significant. In order to examine the effect of income on knowledge level of nutrients, level of knowledge of liquids,
level of knowledge of restitution, level of knowledge of weight control and level of general nutrition knowledge,
the one-way ANOVA and Kruskal-Wallis Tests were applied and the P value was lower than 0,05, it is considered
to be a significant difference. As a result, in the light of nutritional information supported by scientific studies, it
is thought that it will be very beneficial for the athletes to be supported by nutrition education.

significiant difference between young football and basketball players in regard to Ilinois and 505 test values (p <
0.05). It was determined that young football players had better values than young basketball players in regard to
Ilinois and 505 test values. The young football players had better test values than young basketball players in terms
of Ilinois and 505 test values and this situation revealed that agility performance differentiated among football and
basketball events. It could be said that football players had better agility values because of the fact that football

body weight, body fat percentage, and body mass index values. The aerobic exercise program consisted of 3 days
per week for 60 days and 60 minutes per day for 8 weeks. The SPSS 16.0 statistical program was used for the
analysis of the results. The normality test of the patients was performed by the Shapiro-Wilk test and it was
understood that the data distribution was normal. Paired Sample T-test was used to compare the pre- and post test
results of the subjects (P <0.05). It was found that obese subjects who applied aerobic exercise program had a
significant difference in body weight, body fat percentage and body mass index values (p <0.05).
As a result; aerobic exercise program has been shown to contribute positively to body fat body fat index and body
mass index values of obese individuals.
