In order to measure athletic ability of an individual, it is important to measure the cardiopulmonary and metabolic status of the individual (Weber, 1984; Brown, Wiener & Brown, 1985; Sue, Chung, Grosvenor & Wasserman, 1989; Arts & Kuipers, 1994), but neural aspects like perceptual motor coordination, reaction time, anticipation ability, as well as the real actions required for each type of sport should also be measured to get an indication of an individual's performance ability (Bahill & La Ritz, 1984). Vision and reaction to visual stimuli in sport is important in contributing to performance enhancement and can be seen as a limiting factor in the differentiation between elite and recreational sports participation (Bahill & La Ritz, 1984).
