Some great individual performances contributed to Brunswick SLSC coming 18th at the Queensland State Surf Life Saving Masters held at Mooloolaba Beach last week.

Close to 40 clubs participated and Brunswick SLSC entered nine of their best.

Highlights of the day included Rob Brown, who pulled a hamstring at the beginning of the surf race and still managed to come second.

Adrian Russell ran in second in the Iron man.

Grant Carey came fifth in the tube race and Dave Kyle-Robinson came sixth.

Swamy Marsh came third in his Iron Man event.

Special mention also goes to Dave Quemard, who competed in his first major carnival and came second on the 1km beach run.

But the club’s standout competitor was Paul Davies who came first in Iron Man, Board race, Tube race and the Board Rescue.
