The Australian Surf Life Saving Titles are the premier event on the Surf Lifesaving Calendar. Earlier this week, over 10,000 competitors and club members made their annual pilgrimage to North Kirra Beach on the Gold Coast, to chase those elusive gold medals and the chance to add their names into the annals of Surf Life Saving, alongside some of Australia’s greatest sporting heroes.
Thirroul Surf Life Saving Club has a dedicated bunch of Masters (over 30’s) competitors who have been making the annual trip for 15yrs. Included in this group is 64yr old Jeff Wall, now the Australian title holder for the 60-64yrs Board Race. On day two of the titles, he completed his medal set, placing second in the board relay with fellow Thirroul competitors, Ian Sakoff and Ross Taylor and third in the board rescue with good mate Russell Gibson.
“TSLSC members are inspired by the achievements of our masters competitors but not surprised at the results given the hard work and dedication to the sport of these athletes”, says Michelle Emmett, Thirroul Surf Life Saving Club Captain.
