Keaton to take on the Wave Warriors Junior Challenge

Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club Nipper, Keaton Pollington, will take part in the Swansea Belmont, NSW leg of Champion Ironman, the Zane Holmes’, Medibank Wave Warriors Junior Challenge, on November 8.

The Medibank Wave Warriors Junior Challenge is open to competitors from under nine to under fifteen year olds and is a beach and surf spectacular, set up to mirror the famous Kellogg’s Ironman series and promote further development for junior lifesavers in this iconic Aussie sport.

Junior lifesavers from across Australia are keen to hit their local beach to develop their skills and have fun in the water.

“My goal was to create a unique ocean and beach spectacular for junior lifesavers so they can come together from around Australia to participate in an exciting competition,” Holmes said.

The Medibank Wave Warriors Junior Challenge has events across all surf sports disciplines with individual events such as beach sprint, beach flags, surf race, board race and iron person and team events including the new Medibank Movers relay.

“The competition is about participation and fun, encouraging our youngest athletes towards a healthy and active lifestyle and encouraging them to continue their participation in the sport and to become future volunteer patrolling lifesavers at their local surf lifesaving clubs,” Mr Holmes said.

“Medibank is proud to be the naming rights sponsor for the Wave Warriors Junior Challenge,” Medibank Divisional General Manager of Marketing, Sales and Service, Mr Jason Gowie, said.

“This is all part of our For Better Health focus and it is pleasing to find a partner such as Wave Warriors who echoes our sentiments,” he said.
