COOMA'S Nick Wassink has been selected in the ACT target talent program for hammer throw.
The program is available to athletes who are between U16 to U20 and have reached a standard of performance over 2013-14 season and have made it to Australian Youth or Australian All Schools Championships and hope to continue to a higher level in the Athletics.
Nick finished seventh in the Hammer Throw at this year's Australian Youth Championship in Sydney in March. With his other performances throughout the season in Canberra, Wollongong and Sydney he has earned his place in the Program.
The program is to aid the Athletes in their endeavour to strive towards their first International competition, this is usually World Youth Championships held every Bi-Annually.
The Program is not solely for the Athletes, it also involves their Coaches as well.
The Program kicks off in August 2014 with a get together of all Athletes and Coaches at the AIS.
