Congratulations To All Athletes Selected in The 2016 Targeted Talented Athlete Group

Each year, as part of the athlete development program, Orienteering Australia selects a group of athletes to be part of the Targeted Talented Athlete Group (TTA). Members of this group are invited to all HP squad activities, training camps, and competition opportunities for 2016. To be selected in this group in any year, athletes must be turning 16 years of age, or above, during the year they are members of the group. Membership of the Targeted Talented Athlete Squad is by invitation only, based on performance analysis from major national events in 2015 and will be updated after Easter 2016 in the ACT.

Congratulations to the following athletes who have been selected for the 2016 Targeted Talented Athlete group.
