Olympic Talent RecruitmentDate Posted: 29/09/2016 | Posted In: Latest news
17 year old QE student, Luke Stockdale, has been selected to attend a Phase 1 Olympic Talent Assessment Event in the search for Britain’s next crop of Olympic champions! Luke successfully applied for the Discover Your Power talent recruitment campaign and his trials will take place later this summer.
Luke, who is studying A Level PE, Maths and Physics at QE, says:
‘I have won my place for Track Cycling, Skeleton and Sprint Kayaking purely because of my physical profile. I have no experience in any of these sports but am extremely excited about it all. It’s a fantastic opportunity.’
Paul Carroll, QE’s Sports Development Co-ordinator, adds:
“Congratulations to Luke on his selection for a Discover Your Power Phase 1 Talent Assessment Event. Competing at the Olympic Games is an achievement most athletes only dream of and participating in this assessment is an excellent chance for Luke to explore his Olympic potential. We hope he is selected for one of the sports and look forward to any future success he may have. Well done, Luke!”
