Couple test skills against best
YEPPOON Surf Life Saving Club's husband-and-wife team of Matthew Cumming and Alesha Hotz are searching for the complete performance on the Gold Coast this weekend.
The Rockhampton-based surf lifesavers will represent the club at the Queensland Surf Rescue Championships at Broadbeach, competing in the open division on Sunday.
There is nothing easy about their task with a theory paper of 40 questions, resuscitation and live-patient assessment, swim, board, tube and sprint events all accumulating points towards the overall top honour.
Cumming is preparing for his fifth appearance and hopes to finally break into the medals after three previous fourth placings.
Hotz will make her third appearance at the championships and hopes to make a strong showing in the resuscitation discipline.
The Yeppoon members qualified at the Wide Bay Capricorn Branch championships in Hervey Bay last month.
