Heroes and Zeroes – February 1st

The NeuroTracker Team Blog Leave a Comment

Hello, this is a weekly feature on NeuroTracker.net. It highlights recent plays from across professional and amateur leagues in the world. Each week, we will present one “Hero” that shows superior awareness and tracking skills that enable them to perform a great play. We will also present one “Zero” who may well have done better if they did more NeuroTracker training. NeuroTracker is used by amateurs and professionals to improve their focus and attention. It can also help with a wide array of cognitive functions.

Hero – Jonathan Quick

Whoa! What an absolutely massive save! The NHL All-Star game took place this last weekend. Most of the media coverage was centred around the inclusion of John Scott. Eventually, the fans were left very happy as John Scott ended up winning the MVP and his team ended up winning the tournament. A big reason why his team won was the stellar play of Jonathan Quick. He stopped shots left and right and was unbeatable. His submission for the Hero category this week is an incredible demonstration of the ability to track the puck and make split-second decisions.

Zero – Adam Toupalik

This one is a classic. We’ve seen the early celebrations just before a race ends, and then the person would stumble, or fall, or a whole barrage of other things that cause the racer to lose. However, we’ve never seen someone celebrate a whole lap before they’re supposed to! This is a case of an athlete losing focus and having their attention completely fixed on the celebration, rather than the race.
