Discover your gold

The biggest talent identification campaign in British history comes to Scotland

Young athletes from across the country were invited to the Emirates Arena in Glasgow on 10 June to be put through their paces as part of the #DiscoverYourGold campaign.

The aim was to identify 15-24-year-old athletes who have the talent and potential to become future champions, with successful candidates fast-tracked through the exciting world of high performance sport.

As part of the programme, Scottish Disability Sport and the sportscotland institute of sport worked closely with UK Sport to also deliver #DiscoverYourParaPotential, a strand of #DiscoverYourGold that exists to provide opportunities for athletes who have what it takes to be future Paralympic athletes.
