Is 16 too late to start competitive climbing?

So I only recently started climbing consistently(2 weeks now). But if I was to train hard would it be possible for me to be a professional? I am more interested in lead climbing than bouldering or speed climbing.

At the moment I am a beginner and I have never actually lead climbed (only top rope). The hardest walls I have climbed so far are grades 15-17 (5.9-5.10b).

I am in Australia and it is in no way a known sport. But I am sure that there are people that have been climbing since birth.

Should I join a climbing squad and try and take this seriously? It is something that I am passionate about, but if it is too late I could just have it as a hobby.
All opinions are welcome. :)

Thanks, Noah
