THE Fiji Triathlon Association will send three technical officials to the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships in Brisbane next week.

Association president Andrew Pene told Times Sport, the three are level one certified technical officials.

"Tevita Waqavakatoga of the Navy Triathlon Club, Atelaite Satakala of the Fiji National Disability Centre and Nau Dakuiliga of Body Life Gym in Nadi will attend the event from on March 15 and 16," he said.

"This exposure is a requirement for technical officials who wish to qualify for higher levels of technical official training.

"They are registered on the ITU register of technical officials and have levels two and three to work towards."

Pene said the three had been regular officials in the local triathlon series which is sponsored by Marco Polo.
