The WPM Lifeguard Olympics is an annual competition of teams formed by each Area Supervisor
of WPM lifeguards that compete in a series of timed events. Events test lifeguards rescues
skills such as the approach stroke, rescue of a passive victim, rescue of a submerged victim.
Some events are just fun, such as the paddle boat relay. All events are timed with 1 point
awarded for the team with the quickest time, 2 points for the next fastest, etc. The team with
the least number of total points at the end of all events is declared the winner.
