Starc leads Australia’s starry line-up for worlds

Australia on Tuesday announced a team of 57 athletes for the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019, which will be held from 27 September to October 6.
The team for the 17th edition of the World Championships is the second largest to represent Australia. “It’s an exciting team,” said Head of High Performance and Coaching, Christian Malcolm.
“There’s a mix and blend within the team. We’ve got experience there but also a lot of youngsters coming through. I’m really excited to see how they perform, really.”
Headlining the team are Commonwealth Games high jump champion Brandon Starc (IAAF World rank No. 2) and Kelsey-Lee Barber (IAAF world rank No. 2), who will both arrive after second place finishes at the IAAF Diamond League final in Zurich.
