POWER: Vertical Jump – to assess the explosiveness of the lower body
SPEED: 10/30/40 Metre Sprint – to assess running velocity
STRENGTH: Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull– to assess general full-body muscular strength
ENDURANCE: 20 Metre Multi-Stage Shuttle Run– to assess general full-body endurance

*Coaches and talent identification representatives from the 14 participating national sport organizations (NSO) select the top 100 athletes based on their performance at the local qualifier events.
