Rescue 2014 has concluded with some great finishes by the USA team in the Oceanman and Oceanwoman relay. USA 13th Place Overall!!!

It was a pleasure following all of our USA competitors and seeing all the fantastic results.

A shout out has to go to Brian Patrick Murphy, who is putting his international rescue board to rest. Brian is retiring from representing the USA in international competition. Thank you Brian for representing Team USA and showing all of our young USA athletes what it means to represent your county with respect, dignity and commitment, your presence will be sorely missed!

Thanks to all competitors for putting the USA on the international lifesaving map for years to come!!
