NATABUA High School student Lavinia Dickinson and Marist Brothers High School student Lui Pene will represent the country at the Oceania Triathlon Union Training Camp in New Zealand later this month.

They will join other top high school triathletes from Tonga, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Tahiti, Australia and the host country for a seven-day development program.

Fiji Triathlon Association president Andrew Pene said under the program, the two would compete at the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Cup event in New Plymouth on Saturday.

Pene said they would then receive training from ITU-certified coaches in the areas of swimming, cycling, running transitions and preparing and self-monitoring of training programs after which they would compete in the NZ High School Champs in Gisborne on March 29.

"Lui and Lavinia will get to meet ITU coaches who will be able to advise them on how to better prepare, perform and finetune their training programs," he said.

"These students are part of our six-year development squad towards Tokyo 2020 and are at a stage where they are expected to be able to do more self-monitored training."

The two are Fiji's top-ranked high school triathletes in the sprint event.

Pene said they were sponsored by Marco Polo Limited and the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre.
