Beach sprint queen Mandi Maritz, is among the favourties to medal in the sprints and flags. She dominated the South African interprovincial and interclub national championships earlier this year.
Durban Surf’s Maritz also starred at the Sanyo International Classic in Japan.
Marine’s Sasha-Lee Corris Nordengen captains the women’s squad which includes a further four Marine stand outs in Carmel Billson, Keyta Purchase, Bianca von Bargen and Kristin Bellingham.
Billson consistently has been a powerhouse in the surf and pool in all South African national, provincial and club competitions over the past two years. She has been South Africa’s most celebrated lifesaving female since 2016 and is among an elite group equally comfortable and successful in the surf and pool.
