Team OTU

10 February 2015

Applications are invited for athletes from OTU Developing Nations with the potential to compete in Junior Continental & World Championship events, plus Continental Cup and eventually World Cup events to become a part of a new concept in development for the region. This development project will be called Team OTU.

Applications close 8th March, 2015. Please download application form and instructions on this page.

Goal of project

In recent times we have seen a development of triathlon within the Pacific Region but a disparate in development among the nations has deepened. Specifically we are seeing the larger OTU member nations of Australia and New Zealand continuing along the development path, with the smaller Pacific Island Nations not appearing to move forward and into the ITU Elite category.

The primary objective of this team is to provide support, resources and expertise to athletes from emerging/developing National Federations within the Oceania Region with the potential to compete at an ITU Continental Cup and possibly the ITU World Cup level.

At the same time, it is our goal to increase the number of coaches from emerging/developing National Federations to gain experience in the preparation and support of athletes competing at this level.
