Executive Group Decision regarding the 2017 Pacific International Cup in Noumea

On the 7th of July, the EG of OWNZ had a special meeting to discuss whether NZL athletes would be selected to compete or not at the 201 Pacific International Cup in Noumea in August.

After a lengthy discussion, the decision was made to not add this International Event into our current Nomination Criteria for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and not allow any NZL athletes to compete at this event.

If any athletes and/or coaches have questions about this decision then please direct these to our High-Performance Manager, Simon Kent at
