I didn't check it for mistakes. I skim-read it looking for a question. I'm now moving it to the Editing and Writing Topics section.

Who are you going to submit it to?

It would be good if you could fix the spelling mistakes of the words in bold for a start.

I'm afraid the title doesn't work for me at all. Can you explain it using other words? Also, an abstract typically does not have subsections!
I also don't understand the parts highlighted below in blue.

Hi teechar, thanks for your help.

Title: maybe the study of impact of mental training on competitive anxiety...
Subsections: it has subsections, from introduction to conclusion. You're right. At least, I should have bold them.

Blue parts in the same order:

Mental training is responsible for athletes' tactics and skills.
Available samples means the first people whom we met and tested them. In statistics, there is a way for collecting samples, available sampling.

We held 8 sessions of relaxation.
Pre-test and post-test mean when we test samples before and after the intervention.
Maybe "both" is not needed.
