“It’s a pleasure to join the team at TLA,” McLaughlin said.
“To be among a group of Australia’s most successful sportsmen and women was a huge drawcard and is also something I view as a major personal achievement for me.
“I’m very excited for the next step in my career as a TLA athlete.”
TLA’s current talent list includes some of the highest profiles in Australian sport including Australian ODI cricket captain Aaron Finch, Adelaide Crows AFLW captain Erin Phillips, Olympic gold medallists Mack Horton, Emma McKeon and the Campbell sisters as well as Australian Diamonds Captain Caitlin Bassett and Collingwood Football Club coach Nathan Buckley.
“It’s wonderful to have Scotty join TLA in what is an exciting era for the sport,” Head of Talent at TLA, Tony Box said.
