BRIAN MURPHY

Brian Murphy is a professional ocean lifeguard and EMT for the Los Angeles County Fire Dept. The majority of his career has been split between providing excellent lifesaving services to the public and both instructing and eventually coordinating the nationally acclaimed, LA Co. Junior Lifeguard Program. After taking a couple of years off from the sport to raise a young family, Brian is back to not just compete, but, more importantly, mentor the next generation. Brian is among the most accomplished US Lifesavers in the last 20 years! Not only did he make a habit of leading races, but he has also taken considerable efforts to lead Lifesaving Sport into the 21st century by working behind the scenes with officials as an athlete advocate. He looks to mount a full-scale comeback in 2020 thanks to the support of his incredible sponsors and family.
