Powell and Wightman named for 2014 Oceania XC Champs

Box Hill’s Courtney Powell and Deakin’s Nick Wightman have been selected to compete at the 2014 Oceania Cross Country Championships in Guam on Thursday 16 October off the back of their strong performances at the Australian Cross Country Championships in Albany, WA last month.

Powell won the women’s Open 8km national cross country title, while Wightman took silver in the men’s Open 10km event.

The event will be hosted by Guam Track and Field Association on behalf of the Oceania Athletics Association.
