The New Zealand Team selection for the Barefoot World Championships 2016 was announced at the conclusion of the Barefoot National Championships held at Lake Okaro earlier in 2016. Since that team announcement It is with great pleasure that the NZ Barefoot Team Selectors announce that a further 2 members have been added to the NZ Team.

The National Selectors have been monitoring the training and progress of both Toby Kelly and Marguerite Scott and believe the efforts these two have put into training, the progress they have made and the potential points they could contribute to the Team, warrants their inclusion now as full Team members. We wish all our New Zealand Representative the very best at the World Championships.
