On Wednesday night Rescue 2012 kicked off with a bang, with the opening ceremony at Glenelg beach.
The “Olympics” of Surf Life Saving has been held in locations such as Egypt and Germany, but this year splashed into Adelaide, bringing with it 4,000 competitors from 42 countries.
Events such as surf boat races, beach sprints, and ocean swims will be shared between the locations of Glenelg, Christies Beach, and the State Aquatic Centre in Marion until Sunday the 18th November.
Bill Walter spoke with Media spokesperson for Rescue 2012, Ian Hanson about what’s happening on the beach.
