The athletes are tested in four areas: speed, power, strength and endurance
A group of athletes are trying to prove their Olympic potential in front of a group of high-level coaches and officials in Halifax Saturday.
Athletes between the age of 14 and 25 are competing at the Canada Games Centre in front of a panel of coaches where they test their athletic abilities.
The athletes are tested in four areas: speed, power, strength and endurance.
The top performer at each training ground will receive a trip to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
RBC Training Ground is a series of regional workout events designed to help sport officials uncover athletes with Olympic podium potential, in sports the athletes may not have considered.
The program is a partnership in between RBC, CBC Sports, the Canadian Olympic Foundation, and the Canadian Olympic Committee.
