This is the first time that the USOC will lead an effort to find The Next Olympic Hopeful. And, NBC will produce a program later this summer-Scouting Report, The Next Olympic Hopeful to document the experience.
The First Round: In-Person Tryouts, June 24, 2017, 24 Hour Fitness Clubs — Each athlete will complete a battery of tests for strength, mobility and endurance to qualify for selection into the next phase.
Second Round: The Eliminations To The Top 100 — Following the first phase of tryouts, both in-club and online, the applicant pool will be narrowed to 100 athletes—50 men and 50 women—to be invited to spend five days at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, the epicenter of world-class training for American athletes working towards their Olympic and Paralympic dreams.
The Final Round: Welcome To National Team Training Camp — One male and one female athlete per sport (eight total) will emerge from the show as “winners” and will be invited to join the national team camps of four sports: bobsled, skeleton, track cycling and rugby. The athletes will also be eligible to receive financial, training and medical support as they prepare for the opportunity to compete at the Olympic Games in their identified sport.
