Where Are They Now? Micha Burden
Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California. Besides working modeling assignments and recently getting married, Micha Burden, one of America’s top open water swimmers, will represent the Los Angeles County Lifeguards in its annual competition against Victorian State Surf Life Saving Association of Australia in The Wieland Shield in January. Lifeguards – who are an abundant source of local knowledge of the waterways around the world – are often open water swimmers’ best friends. At the 21st Wieland Shield Educational Exchange and Surf Lifesaving Competition, first started in 1956, the Californian and Australian lifeguards will continue to exchange ocean lifesaving knowledge, skills and techniques that they have done over the past five decades. Burden and her California teammates (Jeff Barrett, Micah Carlson, Danny Ching, Maggie Hogan, Pat Jacobson, Renee Locarnini, Brian Murphy, Mike Murphy, Alison Riddle and Shane Scoggins) will continue the tradition.
