Lauterstein grew up in Black Rock, Victoria and attended Brighton Grammar School. He has an elder brother and a younger sister. In his youth, Lauterstein was in the Victorian state football team and represented Australia at baseball in youth teams. He quit both sports at the age of 16 to concentrate on swimming.

2007 World Championships

At the 2007 World Aquatics Championships in Melbourne, Lauterstein qualified 11th in the heats of the 100 m butterfly in a time of 52.63 s. He managed only a time of 52.99 s in the semifinals and was eliminated in 15th place.

In the 4 &times 100 m freestyle relay, Lauterstein swam the third leg. Australia was fifth at the start of his leg. Lauterstein was the second slowest of the third leg swimmers, and Australia were in last place at the end of his 49.17 s split, which was the 19th fastest out of the 24 swimmers who had a flying start. Australia finished fifth.

In the 4 &times 100 m medley relay, Lauterstein swam the butterfly leg and started his split with Australia in second place behind Japan. Lauterstein swam the fifth fastest butterfly leg with a split of 52.63 s and was overtaken by his Russian counterpart, leaving Australia third at the last change. Eamon Sullivan anchored Australia to gold by overtaking his Japanese and Russian counterparts.

2008 Olympics

In the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, he swam in both the 4 x 100m freestyle relay and the 100 m butterfly. He swam the second leg of the final in the 4x100 freestyle relay, winning a bronze medal. In the 100m butterfly, Lauterstein swam a personal best and Australian record in each of the three stages, and qualified for the final with the third fastest qualifying time. He took the bronze medal in the final with a time of 51.12 seconds in a race where US sensation Michael Phelps won his 7th gold medal of the Games. Lauterstein edged out world record holder Ian Crocker for the bronze by just 0.01 s.
