SOUTH Worcestershire Lifeguard Club's Alex Jackson won at the Royal Life Saving Society National Championships in Glasgow.

The 17-year-old Rivers Leisure Centre lifeguard claimed the 100-metre manikin tow in a time of one minute 01.31 seconds.

Earlier in the day, Jackson won a silver in the 100m manikin carry, two fourth places and two eighths in his individual events as well as three silvers in relays.

He will be looking to take part in the International Life Saving Federation World Championships in Adelaide later this year.

His club-mates in the 12 to 14 year group also provided success with a silver medal in the 4x10m rope throw for the second year on a row.

Tom Clifford (fourth individual), Cameron Leach, Jacob Hesketh (ninth individual) and newcomer James Young earned the result.

The boys narrowly missed out on medals in their other team events with two fifth places in the 200m obstacle race and 200m manikin carry.

The girls' team of Ellen Forson, Mia Robins, Lara Harding, Clara Forson and Alice Forson all achieved individual personal bests in most events.

Alice Forson was seventh in the 100m rescue medley race.
