Athletics New Zealand Announces Revised Rio Squad

Athletics New Zealand Announces Revised Rio Squad

New Zealand Rio Squad

New Zealand Rio Squad

The list of athletes and their coaches invited to be members of the 2011-2012 Rio Squad has been released. A total of fifty one athletes have been named in two levels, Gold and Silver for the next twelve months.

As planned, the squad standards have been raised for Stage 2 of the project. It was intended that with the higher standards imposed each year, the squad would be trimmed, but the number of athletes making the cut to Stage 2 has both surprised and pleased Rio 2016 Performance Project Manager Terry Lomax.“We are finding that athletes are rising to the challenges put in front of them and that there is a big group of athletes striving for the ultimate goal of the project – a competitive team at Rio 2016 Olympic Games” said Lomax.

Lomax stresses that the door is not closed to the athletes who have not been named in Stage 2 and expects a number to rise to the challenge to make the squad.

In addition, the athlete’s coaches are included in the programme.
