    a good athlete and an exceptional one.

    Is the underlined trying to say that an exceptional one is better than a good one? Good vision make an exceptional one?
    ===========================
    Today in a highly competitive sporting world where one mistake or one slow reaction can ruin a sporting career, good vision is as important to sporting performance as good physical conditioning and consistent mental concentration.
    (B) As physical conditioning has already proved its worth, more and more athletes will find value in visual conditioning. Many studies show that athletes have better visual abilities than the normal population. (C) They are better at focus flexibility, and reveal greater depth perception or better eye-hand coordination, as well as many other excellent visual skills. Their visual system is fine-tuned to aim, anticipate, and respond more quickly to complete a visual task
    (A) It has also been observed that athletes with excellent vision perform better than other athletes. In fact, today at the elite levels, vision is the one thing that makes a difference between a good athlete and an exceptional one.
