Life Saving Victoria will send a 36-strong squad of athletes to represent the state at the Australian IRB Championships, which will take place in Mollymook, New South Wales from 21-24 July.
The state and development teams were selected by Life Saving Victoria’s aquatic sport council, based on results at the recent TRE Motorsport 2022 Victorian IRB Championships and will compete against the nation’s best IRB drivers, crews and patients.
As well as athletes, the aquatic sport council also selected a team manager, head coach, assistant coach and patient coordinator for each team, based on Victoria’s top leaders and coaches in IRB racing.
LSV board director aquatic sport Aaron Green congratulated the athletes successful in being selected in the state and development teams and wished them the best of luck for the upcoming competition.
“Being selected to represent your state is one of the highest honours for our athletes, team managers, coaches and coordinators,” Mr Green said.
“Victoria has a long history of success at the national level in IRB racing and I am confident the team selected will continue this tradition at the 2022 Australian IRB Championships in Mollymook.
“Best of luck to team Vic, we are all behind you!”
As well as state and development teams from each state, individual clubs will also send teams to compete at the championships.
