A look at a mental pattern during an OR. I was watching this video over and over, watching different subtleties in these two girls shooting form and comparing them and also taking notes in my head on where my coach is trying to go with my shooting.

I watched Park, Sung-Hyun's eye's to see if she was keeping a tab on the clicker position on the arrow as she set into anchor, when I noticed something very cool and also very subtle.

She was blinking perhaps 1/2 second before her clicker would go, a slight eye movement and single blink that correlated with the clicker to an exacting time during every shot.

So I decided perhaps you might be intrested in seeing this. To me this seems like the height of mental apptitude. It was so exacting it must be on a subconcious level.

I found this cool indeed.:D Take a look. ;)

hmmmm-we could buy her LASIK and see if the pattern changes. That's what I call empirical evidence:D :D

One could argue that it is useful to blink shortly before pulling through the clicker, and that this is something worth putting into one's shot sequence, along with breath control. (This could actually pick up a point every now and then, I suppose....)

It didn't work on mine either. Sometimes the still pictures don't show up on my 'puter either.
