Burnham to return

FOLLOWING confirmation that 2011 women's winner Melissa Gorman will return for the 2012 Evans Head Ocean Swim, organisers have announced that 2011 men's champion Jack Burnham also plans to return.

Burnham was a bronze medallist in the 10km Under-18 swim at the open water national titles in 2011, and this year scored a bronze in the open class.

Burnham and Gorman will compete for a top prize of $600 supported by the Evans Head Bowling Club in each of the men's and women's 2km events.

Second place earns $250 and third will take home $150.
