Life­guards meet the chal­lenge

Wanneroo Times - - Sport -

A JOONDALUP life­guard team re­cently won top hon­ours in the 2018 Pool Life­guard Chal­lenge.

Hosted by Royal Life Sav­ing WA and the Leisure In­sti­tute of WA, the chal­lenge tested skills across all as­pects of be­ing a pool life­guard, such as ob­ser­va­tion, team­work, fit­ness, first aid and re­sus­ci­ta­tion.

This year’s chal­lenge had 21 teams, in­clud­ing two from HBF Arena, with Tim Hul­ley, Lewis Downes, Is­abel Fran­zoni and Kieran Lawren­son win­ning the prize.

Team cap­tain Fran­zoni has been a life­guard at HBF Arena for 15 years and is a fa­mil­iar face to reg­u­lar visi­tors to the venue.

This was her sec­ond Pool Life­guard Chal­lenge but her first win.

“Af­ter fin­ish­ing in the mid­dle of the field last year we were keen to come back and do bet­ter,” she said.

“I’m so proud of the team and con­sider my­self lucky to work with them ev­ery day.”
