Versatile Joel says bring them all on



? ASK Rockhampton's Joel Russell what events he will contest at the national surf lifesaving titles at Kurrawa and he quickly loses count. "Ironman, surf, board, surf teams, under-19 surf, board relay, board rescue .?.?. I'm not sure what else,'' said Russell, who will contest under-17 and under-19 events. Starting tomorrow Russell will represent the Maroochydore Surf Life Saving Club against Australia's best. "Hopefully conditions are good, but big as well.'' Also in training are Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club 14-yearold twins, Sam and Miranda Bell, who start their State titles contest on April 7. Another Central Queenslandbased athlete representing Maroochydore at nationals will be Codey Lee while Emu Park is represented by Dan Rye ? on the safety of the beach in his flags and beach sprint events starting tomorrow. Rye cops no shortage of flack from the water competitors after not taking on the surf. "Rye is still producing quick times on the track, covering 100 metres in about 11.8 seconds, and 30 sets of 20 metres at an average of 3.1 seconds. Yeppoon will be represented by Matt Cumming.
