The Oceania Athletics Invitational series is designed to help athletes prepare and qualify for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. The events are proudly supported by the Gold Coast. 
The importance of the meetings is significant; with limited access to international competitions from the Oceania Area, these are the last opportunities to earn significant ranking points towards Tokyo 2020 Qualification; it ensures that there will be some of the area’s best and brightest talent in attendance.

Not only will individual athletes be looking for qualification for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, but the Area’s Relay Teams will also be looking to secure their spots too. With the recent World Relays reshaping the qualification pathway for Tokyo and Eugene, relay teams will need to ensure that they have fast times to secure one of the limited spots available for qualification.

The Australian and New Zealand U20 teams have confirmed their attendance at these meetings after withdrawing from the World Championships this year. A significant development opportunity for athletes having access to limited international competition.

Finally, Oceania Athletics are pleased to be announcing the return of the international team’s competition, The Oceania Cup. Last contested in 2003, the return will see Australian and New Zealand athletes going head-to-head, vying for the prestigious trophy.  It is hoped that in future years, the team’s competition will expand to include a team/s from the Pacific.
