Atlantic City Lifeguards Take Home 1st Place in Annual Competition
It was wet and wild Friday night with Atlantic City lifeguards!
Over the weekend the 52nd annual John T. Goudy Memorial Rescue Races took place. So many competitors took to the sea to try and out-row the others in a lifeguard competition that also involved saving a dummy.
In what was a physically enduring competition, competitors had to row or swim out to a flag that is about 500 feet off the shore of Ventnor and then save a 50-pound dummy. After doing that they had to race back to sand to be claimed the winner.
When it was all said and done, the 'home team' won as lifeguards from Atlantic City took home 1st place, while the lifeguard team from Brigantine came in 2nd.
Congrats to all that competed!
