Jemma finishes seventh in Ironwoman Series

Umina's Jemma Smith has finished in seventh place in 2019-20 Ironwoman Series.

The annual ironwoman competition saw 27 of the country's elite female surf athletes take to beaches across Queensland and NSW from October last year to the final event at NSW's North Cronulla Beach on January 19.

Jemma concluded her campaign with a 12-point posting in round five, placing her in ninth for the round.

The result brought her total points up to 58, putting her in seventh place overall, just a point behind Surfers Paradise athlete Courtney Hancock and just a point ahead of Alexandra Headland's Tiarrn Raymond.

It was also her highest scoring appearance in the competition.

Combining the disciplines of swimming, board paddling, ski paddling and running, the Iron Series is considered the pinnacle of Surf Life Saving Australia's elite sports program.

Club president Mr Stephen Scahill said members of Umina Surf Life Saving Club were "incredibly proud" of Jemma.

He said: "Congratulations Jemma Smith on your outstanding seventh place overall in the IronWoman Series.

"You give us all so much pride in being able to call you ours, a Umina Nipper from the very start.

"Please know that we as a club love everything you encompass about the life saving movement.

"Thanks for being the role model that our nippers aspire to be," Mr Scahill said.
