Road to the Olympic Games: RBC Training Ground in Richmond, B.C. 2:50

RBC Training Ground made its final stop today at Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic in Halifax. This was the last chance for any athletes between the ages of 14-25 to compete for a ticket to Rio. The athletes are put through a series of high level circuits, where their power, speed, strength and endurance are measured. 

Before we get to the final RBC Training Ground winner, let's go behind the scenes and take a look at how the day went:

We had some RBC Olympians stop by and cheer on the athletes.


And those who couldn't be there in person, showed their love in other ways.


The athletes commence and it's pretty safe to say they're in the zone. 


Here's a sneak peak of what a 6 second speed test looks like:


There's nothing like some good ole' med ball throws to get your heart racing.


And when it's your last chance to prove yourself, you go hard!


What better way to end the day than with some swag? 


But the time has come and the coaches have declared a winner. Congratulations, Peter Collier. You are going to Rio!


Congratulations to all RBC Training Ground winners and athletes who took part in this event. You are all rock stars.
