Dr SOUTHCOTT (9:58 PM) —I would like to speak about two recent sporting events in Adelaide that I have been pleased to attend. Firstly, there was the Brighton Jetty Classic open water swim. I was pleased to attend that yesterday with my family. This has been held by the Brighton Surf Life Saving Club since 2006. It involves an open water swim of either 400 metres or 1,500 metres. It now attracts hundreds of participants. It has become a very important event in the swimming calendar in South Australia. Some of the people swimming include a Los Angeles Olympian, Glenn Beringen and Dwayne Thuys. Associated with this jetty classic there is also a sculpture event and a rowing race between the Crows and the Power.


The SPEAKER —Order! It being 10.00 pm, the debate is interrupted.
