2016-05-03 22:40 - FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK Update on Ping's Olympic Progress
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (Olympics)
OlympicsWe all acknowledge and congratulate Ping on her great result at the Asian Olympic Qualifying Round in Wuxi, China two weeks ago. Her second in Women’s Foil result means she meets the qualifying requirements for FENZ to be promoted forward to NZOC for possible selection.

So what happens now?

Myself, Ken Claridge (past President) and Vicci Lamb (Sec Gen) met with Ping and her partner (coach) Ming this last Sunday to discuss next steps.

Roughly the time line is as follows:

1.    Around May 10th NZOC should be in receipt of a letter from FIE providing official details of Ping’s qualification and “endorsing” or encouraging NZOC to consider Ping’s selection to the NZ Olympic squad for Rio.
2.    Prior to this the formal application and supporting endorsements from FENZ will be submitted to NZOC – this is a standard NZOC application but represents the formal nomination and sign off that Ping meets all the FENZ criteria for promotion to NZOC and selection.
3.    It is then over to NZOC to conduct their evaluation of Ping’s suitability to fully meet the Olympic standards and pronounce on her selection etc.

We are not sure of the exact dates for all this to be concluded but as we learn more we will keep everyone in the loop.

In the meantime we are working with Ping to finalise her Development Plan covering her training, development and funding from now until the Fencing Competitions commence on the 6th August in Rio. This is of course on the premise she is selected.

We are all keen to assist Ping to reach her objectives and in addition to support of the monetary kind from FENZ and Oceania we will be setting up some fundraising facilities so everyone can assist as best they can once we her officially she has been selected. More info on this to follow shortly.
