Lifesaving sport was primarily intended to encourage lifesavers to develop, maintain and improve the essential physical and mental skills needed to save lives in the aquatic environment. The Lifesaving World Championships Adelaide 2018 consist of a variety of competitions to further develop and demonstrate lifesaving skills, fitness and motivation.
Below are a list of events that will be held at the championships:
One of Surf Life Saving’s original events, representing the traditional discipline of a surf lifesaver. Teams, often dressed in full length club swimming costumes, march in formation in time to music around a set course carrying a surf reel, line and belt and following their flag bearer. Teams are judged on factors such timing, arm and leg swing, space and dressing, body carriage and presentation.
