Case study 9.2: Talent transferManaging high performance sport (2013)
Elite athletes spend many years in order to reach the standard required for success in the international sporting area. Sports where technique and skill are crucial, such as gymnastics, often require even more years of training and commitment to reach an international standard. Elite gymnasts commence training as young as 7 years of age, with a full-time training programme of up to 7 hours a day by the age of 10 or 11. It is not until the age of 16-18 years that they are at at the senior international competition level.
