Another challenge for Tannum Sands

SURF LIFE SAVING: A small contingent from the Tannum Sands Surf Life Saving Club will compete in the Queensland Surf Life Saving Championships at North Kirra on the Gold Coast.

The three-day event, which starts today and finishes on Sunday, will see more than 1600 lifesavers from North Queensland down to Rainbow Bay on the southern tip of the Gold Coast hit the surf and sand.

The lifesavers from Tannum Sands will be hoping to replicate their performance from last year, when they picked up a gold and bronze medal, along with a raft of other top 10 finishes.

TSLSC head coach John Andrews said Sidney Blake would be one to watch given her strong recent form.

"She will be competing on the beach (event) and should do really well,” Andrews said. "She has medalled at the state championships previously and would be expecting the same this season in particular in her pet event flags.”

Surf Life Saving Queensland sports manager Stuart Hogben says it will be an action-packed three days.
