Kristen picked to compete in NZ



Fifteen-year-old Kristen Andrews of Ocean Shores has been selected in a New South Wales country surf lifesaving team to compete in a tri-series competition in New Zealand.

Kristen will travel with 19 other lifesavers to New Zealand's north island next January.

She will compete in her favourite event - the beach sprints.

Kristen has been involved in surf lifesaving for more than six years and recently attended a Telstra national surf lifesaving youth forum in Sydney.

She was only one of 15 young lifesavers chosen from throughout Australia to attend the forum.

Earlier this year, Kristen finished fourth in her age division for beach sprints at the Australian Titles.

"I am really excited about going to New Zealand," Kristen said.

"I just love surf lifesaving. It is such a fantastic sport, you get to meet the most amazing people and it is a brilliant organisation."
