The Rio Olympic qualification of super heavyweight boxer Nigel Paul and Rower Felice Aisha Chow points the way for the recognition that late specialistation and talent identification are important aspects of a Long Term Athlete Development Programme. In the sport of Judo - Christopher George, a former national water polo athlete has a realistic shot at Rio Olympic qualification and creating local Judo Olympic history.

Understanding the technical and physiological attributes of particular sports is essential as is adopting a more strategic approach to talent identification that can discover Olympians in a greater number of sports.

In striving to acheive 10 or more Olympic Gold medals by 2024. Its important to remain open minded and to look beyond traditional sports and National Sport Organisations (NSOs) pathways.

Its an interesting development that can fundamentally change the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic landscape.
