of outstanding performances across the men’s, woman’s and mixed relay teams. Harrison Haynes’ performance in the men’s 100m Manikin Tow broke the World Record, a huge accolade Haynes that adds to the impressive list of world records broken by the ALT at the German Cup.

From the opening ceremony and traditional fire stick march in the town square to the after-event celebrations, the atmosphere was a unique mix of cultural heritage, International Lifesaving camaraderie and elite competition.

Team captain Jake Smith says the win is a surreal feeling for the team.

“The team really came together in a short period of time. A lot of them came from the youth environment and to see them fit in pretty much seamlessly into the Australian team was a real special thing to be a part of. The team is more of a family than a team to be honest.”

The win is a welcome boost ahead of the World Championships next year on the Gold Coast. Smith says,

“I think the strong performances this year in both the youth and open environment have seen us have such an amazing year so far on the international stage. Moving forward, it’s just about holding that momentum and that energy and camaraderie into next year.”
