Australia has two representatives in the Tournament: Rowan and Kevin Willathgamuwa from Sydney, NSW. Rowan and Kevin is flying to Colombo straight after Australian Schools Finals in Perth.

I cannot locate a website but results can be found on Chess-Results.com. Strangely, Chess-Results.com is posting the different age group competition as separate tournaments. Rowan is competing in the U9 and results are here (http://chess-results.com/tnr41370.aspx?lan=1). Kevin is competing in U7 and results are here (http://chess-results.com/tnr41368.aspx?lan=1).
