Salivary cortisol is the least invasive way in measuring hormonal response during exercise without interruption. In nationally ranked fencers (n=21), changes in cortisol were monitored by measurement of salivary cortisol sampled throughout different rounds of three North American Cup tournaments during the 2017-2018 United States fencing season. The changes were also compared when looking at if a bout ended in a victory or defeat; the difference in rank between opponents; and the difference in score at the end of the bout.
