The 2011 Oceania Regional Championships, held in Apia, Samoa on the 21-23 June 2011 is fast approaching. Oceania Member and Associate Federations are now preparing their athletes for Oceania’s Premier Athletics event for 2011.
This year’s Championships will be new, exciting and competitive with modifications in the competition program and activities, including the new East –West format instead of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia Sub-Regional competitions. The competition will be held at Apia Park Sports Stadium, the stadium used for the 2007 XIII South Pacific Games.
Samsung is the Official Sponsor of the Oceania Athletics Association and along with adidas will sponsor this year’s Regional Championships.
Adidas has been a proud sponsor for Oceania Athletics Association since the Oceania Championships were held in Guam 1999. Samsung became an official sponsor for Oceania Athletics Association in 2010 first sponsoring the Oceania Championships held in Cairns, Australia.
OAA has been working closely with the Samoa’s LOC to make this event bigger and better than previous Regional Championships. In the coming days the Official Championships logo for 2011 will be announced along with the draft program of events and entry standards.
