qualifications for 2019 national competitions

If you are an NQ resident ANQ registered athlete, ANQ Championships offers an opportunity to qualify for the 2019 Australian National Championships & 2019 Australian Junior Championships.

Here is how an athlete can qualify:
- Achieve qualification standard (Available on Queensland Athletics (Junior) and Athletics Australia (Open) websites).
- Be one of the top 2 NQ resident ANQ athletes in event. This is regardless of whether athletes actually finished in the 1st or 2nd for the event overall. This ensures NQ resident athletes do not lose an opportunity to compete at nationals due to visiting non-NQ resident athlete competing at the ANQ Championships.  

Nomination for Nationals will be made available on the Queensland Athletics (Junior) and Athletics Australia (Open) websites. 

Important Information for Junior Athletes (U14 to U20)

These athletes will compete as exhibition athletes in the age group above and will not be entitled to medals, placings or automatic qualifiers.
