TNZ congratulates all four athletes on their selection and would like to thank the selectors, athletes, coaches and clubs who participated in the selection process. Also, a special thanks to the parents and clubs for their hard work and efforts in getting our athletes to this point. We wish Stella, Jemesa, Jacob and Finn all the very best and every success for both events.

It’s now time for us all to rally behind our Junior World Championships & Youth Olympic Qualifier Team.
