Aims: Sleep has been identified as an important factor contributing to optimal sports performance. However, in previous research there appears to be some inconsistency between objective and subjective measures of sleep. Distorted perception may have detrimental effects on the psychological and physiological performance of elite athletes. Furthermore, these discrepancies may align closer during different phases of training. Therefore, the present study aims to explore the relationship between training load and possible discrepancy between objective and subjective measures of sleep quality in elite athletes.
