The professional athlete has one goal above all: Winning. The duel, the game, the championship, the tournament. It’s all about millimeters and milliseconds on the pitch and the plate, precision timing, and intuitive coordination that decide victory and defeat.

They perform under enormous pressure to perform and in the public eye of the media. In doing so, they fall back on patterns that have proven to be promising for them. These actions are the exact focus of our analyses.
