Performance is among key outcomes in sport psychology ( Harmison, 2011 ; Weinberg and Gould, 2007 ) and satisfaction with one’s own performance is a relevant indicator reflecting athletes’ perception of own or team’s level of play ( Nicholls et al., 2012 ). Performance and satisfaction with one’s own performance depend on modifiable factors, such as the use of psychological strategies by athletes ( Gould et al., 1999 ; Krane and Williams, 2006 ). Although cross-sectional associations between the use of psychological strategies and athletes

Water polo is a sport with a growing worldwide interest, particularly for research purposes, with a noticeable increase in the number of recent publications ( Prieto et al., 2013 ). The available research has tried to identify the performance characteristics of the game for both men´s and women´s competitions ( Escalante et al., 2011 , 2012 ; Lupo et al., 2010 , 2012 ). The main aim of the performance analysis is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the water polo teams in order to improve their performance ( Carling et al., 2005

and recreational triathlon ( WTC, 2016 ).
High values of maximum oxygen uptake (VO 2max ) and the ventilatory threshold (VT) 2 have been linked to performance levels in ultra-endurance races ( Whyte et al., 2000 ). Furthermore, other performance factors such as core temperature, feeding, hydration and even muscle cramps during the race have been related to performance in long-distance events ( Laursen, 2011 ; Michalczyk et al. 2016 ,).
Body composition is also related to performance in endurance sports, including triathlons. An excess of body weight is

evening. Thus, it is important to establish if diurnal variations in performance exist for optimal training approaches and match preparation strategies to be implemented. Chtourou and Souissi (2012) concluded training in the morning could improve morning performance and reduce diurnal fluctuations in performance across the morning and evening. Furthermore, in some cases morning training increases physical performance more than training in the evening ( Chtourou et al., 2012 ). In contrast, chronic training in the evening leads to higher daily variations in physical
