Cape Town - South Africa's best male flags competitor Ryle de Morny added the sizzle to a cold day in Adelaide, Australia in the Lifesaving World Championships.
De Morny stood tallest when it counted most as he added another World Championship gold to a collection that now exceeds 10 in the last decade.
De Morny placed first in the flags after missing out on a medal in the sprint, where he finished fourth.
The Notten brothers, Nicholas and Dominic, just missed out on a medal in the board rescue, but Dominic (Notten) did get bronze in the board race, with Nicholas fourth.
Nicholas earlier in the competition also took gold in the surf ski and it was a golden weekend for South Africa’s youth males in the Pool, with Connor Botha and Milan Erasmus also winning gold.
Matthew Fenn and Ally Chislett also won silver in the youth surf ski and surf swim, respectively.
Connor Botha celebrated his 17th birthday with a third place in the board race and Daniel Jacobs also got a bronze in the surf ski.
Team South Africa’s Kira Bester, Tamryn McKie, Alice Edward and Milan Erasmus won gold on the opening day in the junior mixed simulated emergency rescue competition (SERC).
