The final round of the 2023 IOF World Cup will be held in Verona, Italy from 3-8 October 2023. This round forms the European Sprint Championships and will have an individual sprint, a knock-out sprint and a sprint relay. As WOC2024 will be a sprint WOC, NZL is seeking to send as full a team as possible to Italy, possibly using it as the opportunity to give some junior elite athletes with sprint potential the chance to experience the top level of competition. A preliminary booking for accommodation for a full team of 4 men and 4 women has already been made.
To assist in forward planning for WC3/EOC, serious expressions of interest are invited. These should be send to Convenor of Selectors Al Cory-Wright (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 31 May 2023, and copied to HP Leader Malcolm Ingham (email@example.com).
It is possible that some funding may be available to support travel from New Zealand.
