Pluimers to headline Australia’s Sanyo Cup team

Triple-crown winner Liz Pluimers will headline the Australian Life Saving Team chosen to compete at next month’s Sanyo Cup.

National selectors have picked 10 of Australia’s best young athletes to take on teams from New Zealand, Canada, Hong Kong China, Japan and Chinese Taipei.

This year’s Sanyo Cup will be held at Japan’s Aoshima Beach in the Miyazaki Prefecture. The hosts will be represented by a Youth and Open team.

Pluimers will return to the surf and sand following a dominant home summer which saw her become the first athlete to win the Coolangatta Gold, Nutri-Grain Series and Australian Ironwoman title in the same season.
