National triathlon titles set for May

first_imgA team will be selected from the event to go to the Solomon Islands for the 4th Pacific Islands Triathlon (PIT) Championships. The PIT Championships will only be super sprint and sprint events, so selections will only be in these two categories. Event organiser Stephen Damien said this is a great opportunity for the new clubs to send their junior athletes to the national championships for possible selection into the junior squad for the super sprint races.They’re also planning to organise a junior development workshop a few days before the national championships to give the young athletes some basic triathlon skills before the major event. “This is still in the pipeline but we hope that we can get this done before the race,” Damien said.The PNG Triathlon annual general meeting will also be held on the same day after the championships.The nomination form is being finalised and will be sent out by this weekend.last_img
