To help with the improvement of achievement motivation in sports among school children, it was deemed necessary to explore dimensions of sport achievement motivation in order to address any shortcomings therein. To this end, two groups of 40 female students who had participated in Ghazvin Province’s school Olympiads were selected, one representing those who have been successful and winning medals, and the other representing those who have not won any medals. Measuring the two groups’ sports achievement motivation with Gill and Deeter’s Questionnaire, the three motivational components of competitiveness, win orientation, and goal orientation of the two groups were determined. Data analyses lead to the finding of a significant difference between the two groups only in competitiveness. Hence, if physical education teachers concentrate on all dimensions of sport achievement motivation, students would benefit tremendously and sport activities would be more popular.
 
Keywords: achievement motivation, competitiveness, win orientation, goal orientation, school Olympiads
