For over 26 years, the Queensland Academy of Sport has been supporting and nurturing talent identified and elite athletes from right across the State.
The goal has always been to ensure Queensland remains at the forefront of both domestic and international sport and it is fair to say the QAS have constantly delivered on their commitment with a list of sporting champions which would be the envy of any sporting nation.
Sally Pearson, Ken Wallace, Anna Meares, Mark Knowles, Alyce Burnett, Blake Cochrane, Matt McKay, Robbie Kruse, Grant Hackett, Samantha Stosur, Kieren Perkins, Liesel Jones, Libby Trickett, Stephanie Rice, Jamie Dwyer and Emma Snowsill are but a few of the national and international success stories that have come through the high performance programmes at the Queensland Academy of Sport.
It’s hoped this supply arrangement, which has an option as a multi-year partnership between the QAS and sporting apparel brand, Zoo Sport, will assist Queensland’s stars of the future to emulate the feats of their sporting heroes on the domestic and international stage.
Zoo Sport as the Official Apparel Provider of the QAS will supply athletes, coaches and staff across Queensland Academy of Sport and Sport and Rec Services with a range of quality on and off-field apparel.
Zoo Sport will also work with key personnel and athletes from all QAS programs with the organisations set to collaborate on a range of fabric and design initiatives including trialling Research &Development improvements across all QAS sporting disciplines.
Zoo Sport Chief Operating Officer Mel Manley saying
“The entire Zoo Sport team look forward to working closely with all athletes who have been fortunate enough to have been identified to receive support and services from the QAS, as we continue to research and develop technologically advanced performance apparel solutions and assist the State’s best athletes to recognise their potential”.
“With the QAS possessing world-class training facilities and the very best specialist coaching staff, our partnership with the academy is a recognition and reward for the businesses design and production team’s tireless pursuit of excellence and industry leading technology in an extremely competitive industry.”
Work has already begun on the development of all required QAS ranges.
