The Honourable Malcolm Turnbull Prime Minister has accepted the role of Patron to the Lifesaving World Championships, LWC 2018, which are set to take place in Adelaide this November.
A Surf Lifesaver himself, Mr. Turnbull said: “As someone who has long been involved with the North Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club, I understand the importance of the work that our surf lifesavers undertake.”
The ILS Lifesaving World Championships take place every two years, showcasing excellence in lifesaving sports and rescue, and attracting the most talented and skilled lifesaving athletes to compete for the title of World’s best.
It is an opportunity to profile the Lifesaving Movement, the important role it plays as an emergency service and highlight lifesavers’ contribution to the community.
Executive Committee Chairman of LWC 2018, John Baker said: “These Championships promise to be the biggest ever and the Prime Minister’s patronage reflects the stature of the event.”
The event’s competition program will be delivered over 16 days with the official opening and closing ceremonies.
A full social program will support the competition program. It will showcase Adelaide and the surrounding areas, offering tours, activities and events in the City of Holdfast Bay, the City of Adelaide, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale.
And there will be also opportunities for the community and public to engage with the Lifesaving World Championships, with a number of events and programs.
The major community program in the lead up to the Championships is Ride the Wave, a program that engages South Australia’s CALD communities with the surf lifesaving movement, teaching critical first aid and lifesaving skills, engaging with surf lifesaving clubs, and culminating in a demonstration event during LWC2018 itself.
