THE University of the South Pacific Triathlon Club will host the next three events on the Fiji Triathlon Association (FTA) competition calendar.

Last week, FTA handed over the equipments necessary for the hosting of the Marco Polo-sponsored Business House series.

FTA president Andrew Pene said they welcomed USP on board as co-sponsors for this part of the series.

"The FTA is grateful for the USP Triathlon Club's commitment to annually host three of the events of the series and we are happy to be able to provide USP with this equipment which will facilitate the promotion of triathlon to the community," he said.

"We are impressed that since joining the triathlon series this year USP is now competing in all categories of the series.

"It is also commendable that while USP has been consistently improving their position on the table of points for the 2014 series that they still prioritise their enjoyment of the sport and team work."

The events will be held at the USP foreshore on July 12, August 9 and September 13.
