Bondi Lifeguards

The Bondi Rescue lifeguards are household names in Australia and around the world. Corey Oliver (left) has been a lifeguard at Bondi Beach for almost two decades. With a passion for the great outdoors, and travelling, Corey also loves zooming around Sydney on his very own postie bike! His friend and colleague Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid (middle) is well known for saving lives on Bondi Rescue, but is also a popular sports commenter and emcee. He is also a fitness nut, taking part in a range of triathlon and ironman events. Ryan ‘Whippet’ Clark (right) appeared in Home and Away for ten years, before quitting acting to train as a lifeguard. He is now on regular patrol on Bondi Beach while also running his own fitness company. Today, these famous lifeguards sponsor a four-year old boy, Sara, in Cambodia.
