Elite endurance triathletes to line up in Mt Maunganui

New Zealand's elite endurance triathletes, Cameron Brown and Joanna Lawn, have confirmed their entries for next month's Port of Tauranga Half Ironman but a question mark hangs over Brown's appearance.

Brown, an eight time winner at Mt Maunganui and a seven time winner of Ironman New Zealand, has been suffering a niggling calf injury in recent weeks.

Lawn, a two-time winner in Tauranga, is a six-time champion at Ironman New Zealand.

The 21st Port of Tauranga event will double as the official Triathlon New Zealand national championship.
