Hauser and Malowiecki to lead Australian junior tri team
QUEENSLAND champions Matt Hauser and Sophie Malowiecki will lead Australia's juniors to the World Triathlon Championships in Mexico.
Hauser, a three-time Oceania champion who grew up in Hervey Bay, automatically qualified for his second world titles after his Australian Junior Triathlon Series and Oceania Championship successes.
It will be Malowiecki's fourth World Championship campaign after she competed at Chicago, Edmonton (2014), and London (2013).
"I couldn't have been happier after my domestic season successes after the move from Hervey Bay to join coach Dan Atkins on the Gold Coast, earlier this year" Hauser told Triathlon Australia.
"And I can't wait for Cozumel where I'll definitely be chasing a podium finish."
Hauser's coach Dan Atkins will coach the junior men's team.
West Australian Jess Claxton, who won the senior female School Sport Australia Triathlon Championship title in Hervey Bay last week, will also represent Australia.
