John Palmer, Executive Producer of the famous Coolangatta Gold competition in Australia has plenty of lifesaving superstars to choose from for this year’s television broadcast to be shown on Fox Sports Australia and Universal Sports in the United States.

One of the featured athletes will be one of the oldest competitors, American waterman Bruckner Chase visiting from New Jersey.

The Coolangatta Gold is Surf Life Saving Australia’s iconic Ironman race and is considered Australia’s toughest Ironman. The 41.5 km ocean race consists of a surf ski leg, a run leg, an ocean swimming leg, a paddle board leg, and a final run leg with a course that goes from Coolangatta to Miami (via Broadbeach) and returns through North Burleigh, Burleigh Heads, Currumbin and Bilinga.

I am do pre-race interviews with cameras mounted on my craft during the race and a film crew following me. No pressure though.”
