The QAS wants #Youfor2032 in the new thematic talent search

19 March 2024

If you think you have the power to propel yourself to glory, the drive to take your sport to a new level, and the strength to succeed on the world stage, Youfor2032 wants you.

The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) is embarking on a strategic talent search meticulously crafted with sports partners to unearth the next generation of Olympic champions.

These events are seeking slightly older athletes who have a strong training history and the potential to transfer their abilities into a new sport.

From tall, powerful Warrior Women to strong athletes looking to go from Power to Podium to athletes wanting to go from the Beach to Brisbane and female athletes keen to Code Switch.

This could be your pathway to represent your country.

If you have sporting experience, aspirations to represent your country and the drive to succeed, Youfor2032 can help you get there.

The QAS Talent Team is kickstarting testing sessions on the Gold Coast on April 3, Brisbane on April 4, and across SEQ between April, May, and June.

Why not you? Why not now?

We invite aspiring athletes to seize the opportunities and embark on their journey towards sporting excellence.

Bookings now open, so register today at the Youfor2032 website: Thematic Searches - You for 2032 (
