For 2017, New Zealand will challenge Australia in the following classes:

Criteria for Selection

Selection will be based on all known form with emphasis on results in major events during 2016. All athletes registered as entered into the Oceania Championships as of 31 January 2017 are deemed to be available for selection. The panel of Selectors reserves the right to select athletes not yet registered by this date.
