Due to some ongoing confusion re event status, names and event expectations.

Juliet Fahey (Oceania Technical Liaison) has provided the following event descriptions to assist all Oceania federations in better understanding what each event requires based on its designated status.

Oceania Triathlon Union looks forward to further developing our overall Oceania event calendar and look forward to working with each federation in this process.
