Six time Coolangatta Gold champion Ali Day has his sights set on a different kind of challenge this Summer. Signing on to co-captain team Surf Life Saving for Australia Swims, Ali is excited to see more people out on the beach this January.
"I'm so lucky that my training ground is the beach. It's my favourite place to be not only for training but in general too. I grew up by the beach so have always had a real appreciation and respect for the ocean. I love that every day I get to go down and get out in the ocean as part of my job. It’s always different, no two days are ever the same so it keeps it interesting and exciting. I never really know what it’s going to be like, so I’m always eager to get down and get out there and be with nature."
Ali is an strong advocate for leading an active lifestyle, paired with his love of the beach and all things water make him an ideal choice of captain. With Australia Swims kicking off January 19 Ali will be offering tips, tricks and giving participants a sneak peak into his training routine all in the name of swimming! Make sure you keep an eye on our Instagram page for some guest appearances from Ali!
