This article presents a novel approach to monitoring athletes' behavioral changes to predict a decline in motivation. When the system detects such a decline, it refers the athlete to her coach, along with a concise explanation of the detected behavioral changes. The coach thus has all the information needed for a prompt, targeted intervention.
