Aim. The aim of the ­present ­study was to exam­ine the influ­ence of var­i­ous ­aspects of intrin­sic moti­va­tion on the lev­els of per­for­mance in an endu­rance ­field ­test.
Methods. The sam­ple of the ­study con­sist­ed of 144 under­grad­u­ate Physical Education stu­dents. A Greek ver­sion of the Intrinsic Motivation Inventory (IMI) was admin­is­tered to par­tic­i­pants ­after the com­ple­tion of the 20 m shut­tle ­field ­test.
Results. The 20 m shut­tle run ­test was sig­nif­i­cant­ly and pos­i­tive­ly asso­ciat­ed ­with the inter­est-enjoy­ment, per­ceived com­pe­tence and ­effort-impor­tance sub­scales. Regression anal­y­sis ­showed ­that ­only the per­ceived com­pe­tence sub­scale ­could sig­nif­i­cant­ly con­trib­ute to the pre­dic­tion the 20 m shut­tle run ­scores.
Conclusion. It was con­clud­ed ­that the per­ceived com­pe­tence sub­scale of the IMI sig­nif­i­cant­ly pre­dict­ed 20 m shut­tle run per­for­mance and ­thus ­could be ­used to ­explain an addi­tion­al per­cent of the vari­a­tion in the ­participants’ per­for­mance ­scores.
