Almost one hundred students are currently registered with La Trobe’s Elite Athlete Program (LEAP). While juggling study, these athletes are competing at a national and international level across 41 different sports; including AFL and AFLW, Soccer, Wheelchair Basketball, Swimming and Netball.
Three of La Trobe’s athletes competed at the 2016 Rio Olympics and two of our athletes won gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Each year around thirty-five La Trobe athletes pull on the green and gold to represent Australia on an international stage.
La Trobe’s elite athletes recently got together for the launch of this year’s program. Check out the gallery below to see if you can spot a few familiar faces/sporting stars.
