We will be celebrating the countdown with 100 Facts about The Aussies as part of our 100 years celebration. Each day a new fact will land on our Facebook page and website so stay tuned for more fun, interesting and quirky facts about The Aussies.

Fact #98

So many of the athletes from The Aussies have gone onto compete at the Olympics, but did you know that we even have at least one athlete who has gone on to compete at the Winter Olympics? Cam Bolton from Portsea and Half Moon Bay SLSC's in Victoria did, competing in Snowboarding at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The Aussie Ocean Swim

Surf Life Saving Australia will mark a major historical milestone by building for the future at the 100th anniversary celebration of the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships.

In a significant development for surf sports in Australia, the inaugural 2.5km “The Aussie Ocean Swim” will be contested from Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club to North Kirra on Sunday, April 12.

Opportunity to participate in tsunami study

SLS members have the chance to contribute to an SLSA supported Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC study investigating  “Community understanding of the tsunami risk and warnings systems in Australian communities”.

Participation involves a one hour interview about your perceptions of tsunamis and warning systems, and the potential value of digital technology and communications such as social media.

The Aussies Legends: Gavin Hill

Gavin Hill has been involved in The Aussies as an athlete and as a coach since 1978 in which time he has only ever missed one. We think you'll all agree that Gavin is an Aussies Legend.

When we called Gavin on Monday he was doing some stairs runs down at Miami Beach on the Gold Coast.  Sounds like one tough life.
