Orienteering Australia’s ANZ Challenge selection panel is pleased to announce the team for the age group classes. The team was selected from the 119 nominations received in Eventor, where the nominees had also entered the same classes in the Oceania races, and was based on form from the last two national carnival events.
The team for each of the 4 disciplines is the same.
Australia’s Challenge Team Manager will be Orienteering Tasmania’s Kim Nankervis. Kim has previously managed an Australia Challenge Team in New Zealand. Kim can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org
Kim will be responsible for organising the team and has a number of formal responsibilities under the Challenge rules (mostly relating to agreements between the countries on late team changes, etc.), and any co-ordination matters of the relay teams, especially to sort out last minute team changes if there are any injuries to selected team members.
The senior elite selection panel have made the following selection of relay teams for both the ANZ Challenge and the Australian Bushrangers Team for the elite test match.
The elite selection panel will look at the teams for the other races within this week. The above elite relay teams selections are being made public first so that the State relay selectors can make their own decisions.
The junior elite selection panel has selected the following athletes for the ANZ Challenge and for the relay in the ANZ elite test match:
Good Luck to all!
