According to LACo Zuma Beach Capt. Chuck Moore, 60 entrants (out of a field of 2,850) had to be rescued by LACo lifeguards during the swim phase of today's Triathlon, most due to exposure to the cold. With the water temp at approx. 57 degrees Fahrenheit, it did not come as a complete surprise to our dedicated guards. In Saturday's International Distance event which included a 1,500 meter swim, approximately 10 entrants were rescued, again due mostly to exposure to the cold water.
Additionally, during Sunday's main event, per LACo Zuma Beach Lifeguard, Lance Keene, two entrants had a head on collision on their bikes with one hospitalized and the other refusing treatment and transportation to the hospital. Fortunately, for both of these triathletes LACo beach lifeguards were ready to provide swift initial treatment.
