Jemma Smith nails top 10 in Ironwoman

Umina Surf Life Saving Club young gun, Jemma Smith, has locked down a top 10 finish in the Ironwoman Series Final at North Cronulla in February.

She also recorded top four placements in multiple events at the 2017 Australian Titles at North Kirra.

Smith was one to watch in the Ironwoman, mixing it up with pack leaders, never falling below 11th place in the points before finding herself out of contention.

Smith finished her debut Ironwoman Series with 259 points and a 10th place finish.

Her fine form continued at the Australian Opens where Smith recorded first place finishes in the under-19 Female Taplin Relay (three team) grand final, with Umina team mates Jazmyn Rodwell and Rachel Wood; first in the quarter final of the under-19 Female Board Rescue along with Wood; first in the under-19 Female Taplin Relay (three team) semi-final with Rodwell and Wood; and first in the under-19 Female Champion Lifesaver grand final.

With teammates Mimi Henderson, Claire Gaffney and Wood, Smith also recorded a second place finish in the under-19 Female Surf Team grand final.

The team of Smith, Henderson and Rodwell also took out third in the under-19 Female Board Relay semi-final.

The same team also scored fourth place finishes in the under-19 Female Board Relay grand final, whilst Smith, Rodwell and Wood locked down another fourth place finish in the under-19 Female Taplin Relay (three team) quarter final.

Smith dominated in the 2016 season, securing six gold medals at the Open Champion Lifesaver Title and placing third in the Open Ironwoman final.

Those results saw Smith named the female competitor of the carnival, with Smith going on to be named the Australian Youth Team captain for at the 2016 World Titles in The Netherlands, as well as Youth Athlete of the Year at Surf Life Saving Australia's national awards of excellence.
