We saw 32 Somerset College students participate in a talent identification testing session, Tuesday 20 November. The session was run by the Queensland Academy of Sport Prospecting for Gold Program.

The aim of the Program is to identify talented athletes who have the potential to achieve success at an elite sporting level.

The testing consisted of measures of anthropometry, vertical jump, 20m sprint, cycling peak power, standing long jump, softball throw and the multistage fitness test. There were some excellent performances shown by a number of students.

The results will be analysed by QAS staff and any students who demonstrate potential for a particular sport will be notified shortly.
