WINNERS: The Burleigh Girlies made a clean sweep of the gold medals in the Australian Nationals and the Club Crew World Championship events held in Adelaide early in April.

FOUR gold medals were a cause for much celebration at the Burleigh Fire Dragons Paddling Club.

The Burleigh Girlies, the senior C women’s crew all aged over 60 years, made a clean sweep of the gold medals in both the Australian Nationals and the Club Crew World Championship events held in Adelaide early in April.

Girlies president Robyn Stephenson applauded their efforts.

"This is a crew of very determined and motivated women who made a decision back in 2014 to set themselves a goal to qualify and compete in the 2016 Club Crew World Championships," she said.

"These women belong to Burleigh Fire Dragons where they get tremendous support and encouragement, training on Lake Orr at Varsity four times a week.

"The training is hard work but very rewarding, with lots of fun and camaraderie along the way."
