Golden dream in Josh Minogue’s last hurrah at Coolangatta

Mooloolaba’s Josh Minogue could not have scripted the final chapter of his brilliant career any sweeter after being crowned the 2014 Coolangatta Gold champion on the Gold Coast today.

In a dramatic finale to Surf Life Saving Australia’s toughest endurance Ironman race, five-time champion Caine Eckstein was forced to retire from the race mid-way through the board paddle from Burleigh Heads to Currumbin.

These brothers are gonna work it out as Caine aims for Gold number six

Five-time winner Caine Eckstein will have celebrated brother Shannon right by his side when he lines up aiming for Coolangatta Gold title number six on the Gold Coast this Sunday.

Eckstein makes a return to the race he has made his own since 2005 after a two-year absence which saw rising star Ali Day win back-to-back titles.

But with Day opting out of this year’s race, Eckstein is a clear favourite over a field of young guns and two-time podium finisher, Mooloolaba’s Josh Minogue, 30 years since Guy Leech won the original Coolangatta Gold in 1984.
