Titaua Juventin, Athletics Administrator, French Polynesia
Titaua Juventin is a long-serving and respected member of the athletics community in the Pacific. She has a broad background in teaching and coaching, having worked in teacher training with the Ministry of Education in Tahiti.
Ms Juventin’s passion is athletics, especially with young people and children. She successfully adapted the International Association of Athletics (IAAF) Federation’s children’s program in Tahiti and also introduced a program specifically for toddlers to get children moving from a very young age and make sport a part of a family lifestyle.
“Titaua is a strong representative of her federation and Polynesia at the international level,” says Sarah Runzheimer, a project manager with Oceania Athletics Association, adding: “With a strong voice, she is on her third term on the Oceania Athletics Association Council as a Treasurer and is also part of the IAAF Youth Commission.”
