EVER WONDER IF YOU COULD BE AN OLYMPIAN?
RBC Training Ground is here – a day of physical challenges for athletes, ages 14-25, to showcase their podium potential. To see if they’ve got what it takes to be Canada’s next great Olympic athlete, athletes will compete in four exercises that include:
- POWER: Vertical Jump – to assess the explosiveness of the lower body
- SPEED: 10/30/40m Sprint–to assess running velocity
- STRENGTH: Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull–to assess general full-body muscular strength
- ENDURANCE: 20m Multi-Stage Shuttle Run–to assess general full-body endurance
Athletes who meet or exceed performance benchmarks set by national sport officials will be invited to attend the RBC Training Ground National Final in Calgary on September 14th & 15th, 2019 (flights and accomodation covered), where they’ll compete for a chance to receive funding and support to fuel their passion and ambition towards Olympic glory. This event is FREE to attend, however registration is required.
