This research explores the intersection of high-performance sports and the evolving landscape of mental wellbeing technologies, situated within the context of shifting paradigms regarding wellbeing within the sporting realm. Primary research was conducted through digital interviews to understand the perceptions and attitudes surrounding mental wellbeing in sports and how the emergence and adoption of technologies contribute to this discourse. The acquired insights, derived from both primary and secondary research sources, were subsequently synthesized and organized using Curry and Hodgson's (2008) Three Horizons tool. This futures analysis framework was employed to explore the current state of mental wellbeing and technology integration in high-performance sports, an initial vision of the future as imagined by key stakeholders, the necessary near-term changes to materialize this desired future, strategic recommendations to propel the field forward, and an overview of select technologies that can be harnessed to bolster elite athlete mental wellbeing. This study centers its attention on technologies that encompass two important domains in elite sports: mental health and the development of mental skills.
