The main aim of this study was to examine the differences in motivation to participate in sport activities among sports students from three different countries. On a sample of sports students from Slovenia, Croatia and Germany we studied what motivates an interest in being sports active. The sample was stratified across the choice to attend table tennis lessons at all three institutions and all students have completed the Participation Motivation Questionnaire PMQ. We also found significant sex differences in motivation to participate in sport activities for all sports students from the three different countries. We did not find relevant age-based differences among the students, and this is the only initial hypothesis that we can reject. The potential implications of the result can be in better understanding the relationship between different motivational orientations - in particular, extrinsic motivation - and sport motivation among school-aged individuals.

In Study 2, which focused on implicit stereotypes, we observed a slower identification of male names when participants were primed with feminine sport activities.
