High Performance Sport Symposium 'Talent Decoded'

Friday, April 5, 2013

Top sport experts met in Toronto to discuss talent recruitment and development strategies in lead up to Toronto 2015 Pan and Para Pan Am Games.

On Friday March 22nd, the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario hosted the second annual High Performance Sport Symposium at the BMO Institute for Learning in Markham, Ontario.

With the theme ‘Talent Decoded’, over one hundred sport leaders from across Ontario, including Ian Troop and Chris Rudge, met in Markham to outline the path to the podium for Ontario athletes.

Hosting the Pan/Para Pan Am Games in 2015 is the catalyst that will enhance and accelerate our work in putting more Ontario athletes onto national teams and international podiums at the 2015 Pan/Para Pan Am Games and beyond.

Thank you to the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sport for supporting this important initiative.
