It’s all about “Reaction Time” on the fifth episode of “MP Featuring Sport Science.” According to the dictionary, reaction time in sports is the interval time between the presentation of a stimulus and the initiation of the muscular response to that stimulus. It has three stages: Starting Position, Command and Action. We will witness how various celebrities and popular athletes use up their reaction time in their given sports.
For example, we will study the incredible skill of NBA Superstar Steve Nash in doing the ‘no-look pass’ move in basketball. And after that, baseball All-Star Steve Finley will help us find out which is faster, Major League Fastball or a blink of an eye.
Some Kapuso stars will also demonstrate how they react to their own “reaction time” with their given sports. Louise delos Reyes will do target shooting, Sef Cadayona will play saluhan balls and Jomari Yllana will tackle car racing. And remember Gab Moreno? The young Pinoy archer who won a prestigious gold medal at the recent Youth Olympics? He will showcase his skills in shooting arrows with a bow.
The highlight of this episode is of course, a recap on how Pacquaio triumphed against US boxer Chris Algieri last week in Macau. Pacquiao will also demonstrate how fast is his reaction time everytime he packs a punch.
