The future of surf life saving is here
The future of Australian Surf Life Saving is assured if results in the Queensland versus NSW Warriors on Water competition at Kurrawa Beach on the Gold Coast are anything to go by.
Under-15 Lennox Head/Alstonville athlete Tanyn Lyndon was arguably the most outstanding athlete at the entire open event, winning the ironman, surf race and board treble. He also ran second in the one-kilometre beach run to prove that his recent selection as NSW Surf Life Saving vice captain was well founded.
Apart from Lyndons heroics, Lennox Head/Alstonville also won the under-13 board relay after an amazing effort by Ben Harper, Michael Barnett and Oliver Hulbert. These three then joined up with Jacob Wilson to win the under-13 cameron relay and under-14 cameron relay and surf team title with Nathan Diehm and Hayden Thomas.
Hulbert, who is also part of the NSW squad, excelled in the individual events winning the under-13 male surf race.
The local clubs domination of that age group wasnt restricted to young men with under-13 Ellie Leaver finished second in the ironwoman and third in the board event at the interstate championship.
