August's challenge was a doozy.
Our judge, Pete DeQuincy, decided to close out the season with his toughest challenge yet: A shallow water rescue drill in which playing the victim was equally as important as performing a timely, accurate rescue.
Not only was this a difficult challenge to execute, it was difficult to judge. DeQuincy recruited two more judges to evaluate the submissions, keeping a keen eye out for those crucial details that could make or break a performance.
Though all participants put in admirable performances, there can only be one August Challenge Winner. Kudos to the City of Temecula on a near flawless demonstration.
Watch DeQuincy explain how he judged this particular challenge, plus footage of Team Temecula in action.
That's a wrap for this year's challenge. However, we have one more winner to announce. Next month, we'll award the overall reigning champ of the 2016 AI Summer Lifeguard Challenge.
