WANDA AT THE AUSSIES 2022
Wanda SLSC has finished 7th overall at the Australian Surf Life Saving Titles.
The Championships were held on the Gold Coast last week, with youth, masters and open competitions.
“It has been a challenging year, so it was fantastic to see our club succeed and enjoy Aussies,” said Nathan Spinner, Wanda SLSC President.
“As always, it was a true team effort. Our touring team competed in all disciplines – water, beach, distance swimming and running, surf boats, surfboard riding, lifesaving, R&R and march past”.
“Special mention and thanks to our coaches, managers and volunteers. With so much disruption this year, they’ve had to be adaptable and positive. The entire club values their dedication and hard work, we wouldn’t be here without them.
“We crowned 10 new Australian champions, won 11 silver medals, 14 bronze and had many top 10 performances. These are incredible results against Australia’s best, proud memories that will last a lifetime.
“It’s certainly not all about winning though. There were hundreds of personal bests and achievements within our squad. Our members come to Aussies with different goals and everyone is to be commended on their effort representing Wanda,” said Mr Spinner.
