A team of nine athletes has been provisionally selected to represent New Zealand in athletics at the 16th edition of the Pacific Games. The Pacific Games will be held in Apia, Samoa from the 7-20 July, with track and field to be contested from the 15th-20th. This is the first time New Zealand has been invited to participate in a number of athletics events at the multi-sport competition.

On the track, a provisional team of seven has been announced. This includes Auckland’s James Guthrie-Croft, Manawatu’s Brayden Grant, and Christina Ashton and Sarah Langsbury from Otago in the sprints; Wellington’s Tessa Hunt and Kirstie Rae in the middle distances, and Hawke’s Bay/Gisborne’s Matthew Taylor in the 10,000m.
