Abstract

AIMS:

To examine the link between hazardous drinking and level of sport participation in New Zealand.

METHODS:

Sports science and general university students (n = 427) completed a sporting profile questionnaire that included the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT).

RESULTS:

Elite sportspeople (both provincial and international/country level) reported higher rates of hazardous drinking than non-sportspeople and non-elite sportspeople. Similar differences were observed in AUDIT subscale scores, with international/country level sportspeople reporting greater symptoms of dependence than other groups.
