The Rarotonga masters athletes will return to the BCI Stadium on Wednesday afternoon for a mini-track and field competition.

Tomorrow’s competition will kick off a big year for the country’s masters athletes.

After a successful Oceania Champs in Tahiti last July when a team of 19 athletes returned with 60 medals, the masters are preparing for the next championships which will be held in Tauranga, New Zealand from February 5 to 12 next year.

Plans are also in place for the Cook Islands masters championships to be held in October (around Gospel Day) with several overseas athletes already confirming their participation.

Tomorrow’s competition will be an opportunity for those that want to try out any of the throws (shot put, discus or javelin), the long or triple jump, or just to have a run on the track.

Anyone 40-plus is welcome to attend with the events starting at 5pm (warm ups from 4:30pm).
