Content: The modern world imposes to people strict conditions in different types of activities. A huge amount of processed information, tight time frames and other different factors can lead people to don’t cope with their tasks. Modern elite sport characterized by negative human functional states of athletes and their coaches, because they haven’t got enough time for full recover of their psychological, physiological and emotional resources. All of these can lead to one or even more professional deteriorations that will play important role in career determination from sport. Professional deteriorations- are different changes of human under professional influence. The main aim of our research was to identify and analyze professional stress and main risk-factors, which will help skaters and their coaches to reduce decrease of performance state. The present study was performed with different elite athletes and their coaches. There are 81 elite figure skaters, 63 elite wu-shu athletes and their coaches (24 persons and 16) which take part in our research. Thus, the result of our research demonstrates high level of deteriorations of all participants. Moreover, burnout, neurotic reactions and behavior risk-factors are on critical stage. Regression analyses showed that main predictors of burnout (R² = 0,418, p ≤ 0,001) are depression, physiological discomfort and communication problems. Whereas, anxiety, aggression and asthenia are predictors of neurotic reactions (R² = 0,419, p ≤ 0,001). Thus, professional deteriorations are one of the most topical and pressed forward problems, which need further development in modern psychology.
