Mallette had been serving as the interim head coach of the High Performance Centre in Ontario, Canada since March 2022, when longtime head coach Ben Titley left the program after his contract wasn’t renewed. Mallette was recently named the official head coach of the HPC-Ontari last week.

“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to be the Head Coach of the High Performance Centre – Ontario,” Mallette said, according to Swimming Canada.

“HPC-Ontario has been one of the best swimming programs in the world for the last several years – if not the best. I’m looking forward to helping carry that forward into Paris 2024.”

The High Performance Center is home to many of Canada’s top World Championship medalist swimmers such as 15-year-old teenage phenom Summer McIntosh, veteran backstroker Kylie Masse, as well as sprint stars Penny Oleksiak, and Josh Liendo.

Prior to being named interim head coach this year, Mallette served as a HPC-Ontario assistant coach since 2019. Before that, he served as the head coach of the High Performance Center in Victoria, British Columbia.

The Commonwealth Games are set to begin on July 29, 2022, in Birmingham, England.
