Uriarte was appointed the Australian menís team
head coach in June, 2001.
Since then he has been installing his wealth of
experience and knowledge into a side that he
first put together three years ago. Together,
with assistant coach Russell Borgeaud, Uriarte
has been working for this moment since he was
first appointed and is now looking forward to
seeing the abundant talent in this young
Australian side come together and be a force at
the 2004 Olympic Games.
Uriarte played for the national Argentina menís
team from 1981 until 1992, and was a member of
the team that finished third at the 1982 World
Senior Championships and won a bronze medal at
the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games.
