A key element of the Australia’s Winning Edge strategy is to identify our high-potential athletes and ensure they receive the right support at the right time in their pathway.
The Australia’s Winning Edge Athlete Categories has been developed to provide a consistent basis, both within and across sports, to:
- Identify the athletes with the greatest potential to contribute to Australia’s Winning Edge targets
- Track their performance over time
- Inform the prioritisation of support to these athletes.
