Synchronised Lifeguard

Surfer Colin Phlegm may not have had the most dignified rescue when he found himself struggling against the tide while on holiday in Australia this summer. All the same, he was thankful when lifeguard Ricky Flambeau hauled him to safety. Fortunately Ricky, who has never completed his lifeguard certificate, is nevertheless an accomplished synchronised swimmer.

"I'll admit, it was a great relief when Ricky came up from below me and lifted me out of the water, perched on his shoulders," Colin told us. "But I didn't really have time to register any surprise before he swung me round in a circle by my ankle, prior to performing a couple of inverted twists and ending up in the flamingo position. I gather, from what spectators have told me, that it was quite an impressive spectacle. Well, I don't know about that. All I can tell you is that I have never, in all my life, been so grateful for the sight of a spangley leotard."
