Craig Crossley's insight:

YEAR 11 HPE - FITNESS TESTING / TALENT ID (Term 2 2015)


Talent identification has become increasingly important across a number of different domains (Abbott, Button, Pepping & Collins, 2005). Within sport, it is becoming more important than ever. Teams are desperate to try and recruit the best to help them succeed and this process begins from a young age (Abbott et al., 2005). Talent identification processes start at a young age to ensure the individual receives the 10 years (or 10,000 hours) of deliberate practice that is widely recognised as a necessity on the pathway to elitism (Ericsson, Krampe, & Tesch-Romer, 1993; Starkes, 2000).

In almost every sport the top level performers are all similar in their level of ability, for example they all have similar attributes of being strong, fast, skilful, and have as much stamina as each other. Yet in every sport some performers emerge as winners while others never quite reach this level.  The difference between these top level performers and the winners are the players who can overcome the mental pressures of a tough game; they can ignore and in some cases embrace the crowd and the importance of the occasion.

I believe that if you are going to run a 2 hour long marathon, a cash prize shouldn't be the reason why you are doing it. It should be for like if you want to achieve something, you have a passion for running, if it's for charity or even if you just want a challenge. No for money cause money may control our lives, but it's what destroys and becomes of us which is scary, money just too materialist.
