Oceanina Triathlon Union has appointed Juliet Fahey from New Zealand as the OTU Technical Liaison.
The voluntary position forms part of the changes put forward for strategic planning and reporting of OTU to bring them in line with the structure of other continental federations.
The appointment is expected to further engage technical officials to officiate at events in island federations for their own experience and to guide emerging technical officials.
Fahey is a ITU Level 2 certification holder as well as a member of the Board of Triathlon New Zealand. She was also elected as Vice President of the Oceania Triathlon Union last year. She has extensive experience at a large number of events over seven years both within and outside of New Zealand with some experience of small Pacific country triathlon activities, including ITU Technical Course held in September 2009 in the Cook Islands.
