Following Cooper Tire Europe’s Precision Challenge video featuring some of Arsenal Football Club’s star players, the ‘Official Tyre’ partner of the Barclay’s Premier League Club have studied the footage in more depth to explain the science behind the accuracy of five Arsenal players.
In a new video, Cooper Tire Europe overlays graphics onto the original video, examining the varying styles and techniques as the players tried out the Precision Challenge. These five players were Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny.
Distance, speed, trajectory and technique are all taken into account in the analysis, which concludes that Santi Cazorla’s superb strike to get the ball through a line of four Cooper Zeon CS Sport performance tyres represented the best style and effort.
Cooper Tire Europe Marketing Communications Manager, Sarah McRoberts, said, “Both Cooper Tire Europe and Arsenal Football Club are truly driven by success and you can see that in this video.The players are so competitive, they won’t give up until they’ve got the precision kick just right. We adopt the same ethos when we’re developing our tyre product – second-best just isn’t good enough.”
