Peter Allison has returned from the Australian Surf Life Saving pool rescue championships at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre with six medals and two new national records.

About 600 competitors attended the event, from under 12s to over 70s, along with about 100 officials, volunteers, team managers and support staff.

In the 70 years+ 100m obstacle race Peter won gold, retaining his title from last year.

In the 60 years+ line throw relay his team won gold, setting a new Australian record in a PB time.

For the 70 years+ 100m manikin tow with fins event, it was gold for Peter, who set a new Australian record taking almost 8 secs off the previous record.

He also won silver in the 50m manikin carry and the 100m manikin carry with fins for the 70+ age group.


In all four individual 70+ years races, Peter's times were faster than he recorded at the 2018 Australian titles where he won four gold medals in the same events.
